Audrey Roloff definitely nailed her water birth at home. The birthing choice came as a surprise to her followers, especially since her other two were done at a hospital. The Little People, Big World star was truly a brave mama as she embraced the whole process.
It didn't take long for Audrey to get back up on her feet after birthing Radley Knight Roloff. She shared a mirror selfie just an hour after giving birth.

Also, both parents will feel more present in the whole birth experience, which is the case with the Little People, Big World couple.
