New mom Evan Rachel Wood has expressed gratitude to TV talk show host Ricki Lake for educating her about different types of childbirth.
The Wrestler star, who welcomed a son with husband Jamie Bell on Monday, credits Lake's documentary, The Business of Being Born, for giving her choices other than traditional childbirth.
In a post on Twitter.com on Tuesday the Ides of March star wrote, "I have to say thank you Ricki Lake for your inspiring documentary 'the business of being born.' I never knew I had a choice when it came to labor. It taught me so much & aided my decision in having a natural home birth which my son & I are now forever grateful for."
Lake has since responded, writing, "You are so welcome. Overjoyed to hear you had a positive birth experience & a beautiful son!"
