I'm not a homebirther but thought I'd share what I thought was a very nice representation of a homebirth on a TV program.

I'm watching Ballykissangel (BBC program from the late 1990s, I get it from Netflix) and in season 4, one of the characters has a homebirth. It was very nice - no real hysterics or complications.

Just thought I'd share.

It is so nice to see it portrayed as a non-emergency, calm, normal event. Too bad there isn't more of that. I can't imagine how much it would help the cause if a major TV show had a major character give birth that way.

There's a homeburth in monarch of the glen as well, another BBC show. A little drama because the dr? mw? was late or something like that. The mother of the laboring woman also had her children at the same house

Funny how it is only British shows that manage to show home birth in a good light. . .
