Staxon Drury came into the world to a YouTube audience of hundreds.

His mother, Lindsey, is one of an estimated 200 pregnant women who will give birth at home annually in Chattanooga, but Lindsey wanted to do so in the most public way possible. She had talked about giving birth in a park, or in the food court at the mall. She settled on YouTube.

Already a mother of two girls, who were both born at home, Lindsey wanted challenge people's preconceptions about a universal but often taboo human experience.

She also represents a slowly growing movement of expectant mothers seeking natural births outside of hospital settings, despite healthcare provider warnings about potential dangers of the practice.

The YouTube video of Staxon's birth has now been viewed more than 60,000 times.
