Mae James Bair Koma, was born in March 2021. 

When asked why she wanted to deliver her baby via home birth, using a birthing tub, the 34-year-old Duff said she had an ‘easy” first birth with her son in the hospital and after that experience she ‘knew her body’ could handle a home birth.

The Youngblood singer star said she was inspired by actress Ricki Lake‘s home birth documentary The Business of Being Born and said to herself, ‘I think I can do this.’

Duff commented on her experience giving birth in a hospital: ‘They don’t let you have water in the hospital. Or food, or snacks. ‘

The Lizzie Maguire star admitted that she enjoyed eating sushi in her bed with her baby, and a glass of rose she had been dying to drink. ‘I took a sip and was like, “That’s not doing it for me,” but the day after I had some.’

Clarkson commented that the idea of a home birth was scary for her.

The talk show host and Stronger singer said she experienced complications while in the delivery room. The single mom has two children, son Remington, seven, and daughter River, five. 

Duff said she realized medical issues and concerns about complications can prevent many women from following her example. 

The busy mom and actress admitted her home birth experience was ‘the most hippy dippy thing about me,’ and admitted, initially, she thought it was kind of weird, but in the end, ‘it was ‘really beautiful, like, to bring another family member in with everyone around.’
