I changed the music to "Dream a Little Dream" and added smoother transitions to the photos.
The talk is for a class on transition customs/rituals as it differs between Japan and the U.S. You know, birth, weddings, death, etc.
The talk last year was ok, but they had a nurse-practitioner there that didn't really know anything (and didn't do births in the hospital)...she kept saying that women had all these choices (and in our local hospital, trust me, they DO NOT), women don't birth on their backs any more, blah, blah, blah...
This year I wanted to just focus on midwifery, show births of people in the community, what they look like, why they choose it, etc. I don't want to get into the logistics of countering her all the time because last year it got crazy. (Like when she told the class that I was wrong: the baby's cord has a vessel of mom's blood in it, too. "That's why we have to be so careful when we draw for cord blood gases!" Ugh. After two minutes on that debate, I dropped it.)
