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, and she allowed Times Free Press photographer @doug.strickland to follow her and document her pregnancy and her son's birth.

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.

Two-year-old Zoey Duncan played with her wheelchair while at her family's apartment on Thursday, January 7, 2016. One year before a gunman opened fire in a College Hill Courts apartment, killing a 20-year-old woman and wounding three others, including 1-year-old Zoey Duncan, who barely survived. Zoey was paralyzed from the waist down. A year later, she moved around in a tiny toddler-sized pink wheelchair. Zoey's mother, Bianca Horton, was later shot and killed in 2016, possibly because she was to testify against her daughter's accused shooter, and a witness fund was set up for witnesses of crime in Horton's honor.
