It's no surprise the Ricki Lake's second son, Owen, was caught by someone other than her doctor. The force behind The Business of Being Born and midwife advocate wrote, "In the tub, I pushed for 13 minutes, three contractions. Then Miriam told me to reach down and touch my baby. I placed him on my chest, and he stared right at me with his eyes wide open. We got out of the tub and into the bed. They talk about the high you have with a natural childbirth. It’s so true. I had all this energy. I mean, I was flying. I was so psyched. I wasn’t tired at all."
