smeisnotapirate-wow! brutal. Good thing you know better. I'm sorry for your loss.
I gave birth two weeks ago so i have hormone brain, bear with me :P
Someone posted on MDC that so-and-so was looking to do an interview with a lotus-birther. I contacted the person and did the interview last week. It was a guy doing the interview, which I thought was pretty brave (he didnt really know what he was getting himself into interviewing ME of all people lol). The lady that was putting it all together hired him to shoot it. Anyways... I will share some of interview, not word for word, but pretty darn close:
Him:They want me to shoot some footage of you watching your birth video. Is that ok?
Me: Yup. Let me put it on my computer. (I put it on.)
Him: (Videoing me watching it.)
Me:This parts awesome... Her head is all the way out, and I thought her body would just slide out on the next push, but she was pretty big and she was pretty stuck. The midwife had to give her a good tug while I was pushing.
Umm... do you have any footage thats not adult-oriented?
No way, man. It's birth!
Him: OK, we'll just film it and they can edit what they want.
What did he think a "birth video" looked like?
Oh, and the other time he almost fainted...
Him: Was there anything in particular that you had to consider before making your decision about Lotus birth?
Me: The major thing for me was that I was weighing the benefits of a peaceful gentle birth for my baby verses the postpartum benefits for me from eating her placenta. Lucky for me, I had DS's placenta in the freezer from his birth, so I could have my lotus birth and eat it too.
