Chimpanzee giving birth

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Someone just sent me this link (someone who has never given birth and thinks I am a freak for home birthing/UC)! 
Anyway, I was fascinated by the instincts of this mama chimp. She just moves around to whatever position suits her. She totally knew what she was doing! Papa chimp just kind of hovers around and then loves on the baby a little bit when he comes out.

:) Beautiful nature at work! And them I'm just sitting here jealous! I wish I could bend like that mom! I'm imagining great pain relief in all those positions. ;)
