Hannah just told me this was here. I'm glad you all (well most of you ) got a kick out of it. I was a bit reserved about filming it, but in hindsight I am glad I did it. He came up with the idea.. and yeah it was a spoof on Snakes on a Plane. He was nervous about the birth and I think this was a way to lighten up? The birth was wonderful. It was at home and uneventful.. although during labor I was on hands and knees in the kitchen and kept seeing this thing under the stove.. it was a snake from the night before.. lol
We filmed it on 4th of July and Parker was born on the 5th at 8 AM I'll post the birth video someday.

Too funny. I think there are actually three (at least two) different threads about your video if you want to check them out. You guys are funny. I'm sure your dd is going to be a little comedian as well.


You know, we have a 4 ft long snake (she's very sweet and docile) and she was just missing, in our house, for an entire week. So we could've had a big 'ol snake on just about anything...really.

Can somebody describe the video for me? I'm using someone else's computer and it has no speakers so I can't hear what's going on.

Yeah that part and the part where he's running around yelling "Oh no! Snakes! Snakes! I told you we should've gone to the hospital!" are my favorites.

Hi Viola!

I saw this link a week or two (?) ago but got an error when I clicked it, so this is the first time I've been able to see this infamous "snakes at a homebirth" video.

Ohmygoodness. I can't stop laughing. Something about the husband running back and forth back and forth with little regard to his wife covered in snakes while yelling "We should gave gone to a hospital!" :

Another delayed response....was anyone else worried at first that the joke was going to be that mama was going to BIRTH snakes? I kept thinking, please no please no!

It was very funny! Nice video xiola!

I haven't laughed that much in ages!!!!! This is so going to be required viewing for my clients' families, especially nervous in-laws.

I think what I like most is the captioning "90% of homebirths are safe......10% are not...." We are always so sober about risk, and to a degree we need to be, but this puts a wonderful, hilarious spotlight on the irrationality of the fear surrounding birth outside the hospital - where I am told by my physician friends - ANYTHING could go wrong! Apparently so - even snakes.

Obviously they should have gone to a hospital.
