Thandie went on to voice her support of independent midwifery and thanked the two midwives who helped her through the home birth on Monday.
My 3rd home birth with brilliant independent midwife Caroline Flint - and Carole Goddard @PhoenixMidwives. Keep independent midwifery alive!

Booker is Thandie's third child with her husband, film director Ol Parker. Their two daughters Ripley, 13, and Nico, 9, were also both born at home.
Proud dad Ol took to Twitter today to share his joy at the latest edition to the Parker family and it's clear he is already smitten with his 'awesome' son.
We had a baby, that's a beautiful thing. He's called Booker, and while he doesn't do much yet, I suspect him to be awesome.
