I watched the video before I read the responses. As I watched it, I had a hard time with all of the people- their comments, their noise, their moving about, people actually touching the baby's head and bag as it emerged. As I watched the new mother holding baby, having after-pains with all of those people talking and walking around, I felt protective of her and was thinking "why don't those people get out of there!"
And then I read all the posts! How interesting that nobody seemed to think as I did, but rather thought all those people were supportive, their prescence positive. It just goes to show you that we all want and need such different kinds of supportive environments when we birth. I don't like noise when I birth, and I certainly don't like people touching me or my baby. I would have flipped!
Oh, my dd was born in the caul too, and I think this is the first time I'd "seen" another baby born in the caul! Really neat!
