Uh, why?  It's so strange that I just had to share.  What are your thoughts on this?

You know, Im open to a lot of things...but sometimes I feel like people do things just for the "WTF reaction" they can get from it.

I love this... seen it before and think it is hysterical. lol.gif

 

My favorite part: 

 

 

How long does the baby stay under water?

Well, I plan to let the koi guide him up to me. But Shane will be standing by with a net, just in case.

DDC hopping....

 

Hi Ladies, I just want to let you know that the blog is not made up and that the mama is in a DDC here on MDC. She is an active and long time member. Please be gentle with your comments.

 

Thanks,

  Amy

She is in the Oct DDC and posted it in there.  Theres a long thread of outrage and laughter in there if anyone cares to look.

Yes, but is it true or not?  I really don't think it's a funny joke to be posting such things on Mothering (and pretending that it's true).   Everyone seems to think that it's satire, but she seems to be maintaining that it's true..  :/

The mama is real and here on Mothering but the blog is a joke.  Being "convincing" or straight faced while telling it is part of what makes it funny. 

 

There's a thread about it already if you want to see a hundredish opinions about it though.

I read the other thread.  I mean, its clever...but I wouldn't put it past somebody.  Its all just a game to see how outrageous people can be these days!

Hah! I totally thought that was real and sent it to my sister and was like, "uh, seriously... this is crazy"... She assured me it was a joke before I read further into everyone's comments here.

LOL!!! I just told my husband about this and his first reaction was, "WHY ARE THEY TORTURING THE FISH?!"  ROTFLMAO.gif

It's the most natural option for people who are landlocked and unable to share in the joy of having a dolphin midwife attend their birth. ;)

ROTFLMAO.gif OMG, justamama, I broke out laughing so hard at your response that I could barely read it out loud to my husband without stopping and starting again in between tears. Thanks from the both of us. That was gold. ROTFLMAO.gif

It's almost irritating how weird it is. lol I was reading the questions and answers and scratching my head and shaking it. What if she hemorrages and the blood kills her "precious" Koi? Could the disinfectant stuff harm or infect the vagina or baby?

 

Oh......Sheepish.gif It was a joke. I'm officially a dummy.

 I found it offensive that she basically says  that if you have a unassisted birth your stupid irked.gif

I did too.

She is a midwife. There are VERY few midwives that don't think unassisted birth is not a good choice for most women. And even fewer that would openly encourage women to UC.
