Um....wow. Ya think being made to labor on her back might have contributed to any difficulty she had?

I wonder if this woman knows that her private and beautiful, profound moment (and that of her baby as well) is up on youtube for everyone to see and comment on. I think it's a shame that it is being presented and commented on in such a negative way.
That baby looks big, beautiful and healthy and the Mama did an amazing job.

Cool video (minus the cutting and being on back etc. ). I wasn't able to see my DD's birth so that was cool to see. But good griewf! Why the pushing and pulling on that baby!?

Give more**Expect Less
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

ETA: Or looks like a birth photographer. BAH! He has 3 videos, of 3 different types of birth up on YouTube.

2 waterbirths and the Hospital one I linked to. I think it *Might* be his wife, not sure...could always email and ask? I know after a birth like that, I sure as heck would b-line AWAY from a hospital as fast as my feet could carry me

Where is that info? It looks like the person has three videos with clips of various births. I don't see any info stating that it is the woman's husband, or any personal info at all. And even if it was her husband, there is certainly no info. about her giving permission to have that up on youtube. Nor is there (IMO) anything respectful about warning people to not eat lunch while watching the birth.

Yuck! That episiotomy looked so unecessary and painful! I can't believe that mom was on her back. Ouch. I tried pusing on *land* if you will, and that was standing up! It hurt, so I went into the water where I gave birth. I can't even imagine being on my back PLUS not having the benefit of water. Owie.

Why in the world is that quick clip of a simple and shockingly clean water birth marked as "may be inappropriate content" and the hospital birth (blood, closeups, etc.) is not?

Alice,
It's probably marked because it ws 'flagged' by a youtube member. I think that's how it works there.

Probably the breasts. See, people have a problem with breasts...rembmer?

See, in the graphic gorey hospital birth, there were no breast shots. In the waterbirth one, there were.

In some prude's eyes, breasts are baaaaaad.

where's that eyeroll smiley???

What does eating have to do with watching a video? I'm eating a corndog (veggie) while watching the video. (honestly, I'm asking seriously, I've heard people say similar things before "not while I'm eating!" etc, I never got the joke or what was wrong with eating while watching ugly things) Really looked owie, I feel bad for that mama with all the poking pushing and pulling, oh, and cutting. How painful and cold.

I implies that it's so disgusting it'll make you sick and therefore you might throw-up your food or at least lose your apetite.

I think mom looks happy and healthy in the end, so does baby, could worse,
but it just looks uncompfortable, like shes on a flat gerney (cant spell) thing not even a bed, and that pushing on her belly, then top it off with a terrible cut, wow!

How doyou find the other 2? the waterbirth you are talking about?

Here's the profile of a lady who put up her birth video. She's a Lay Midwife. So you can do the math

Totally different ambiance...

So (sorry for carrying on off topic but I have always been curious about this) is it just a silly saying or are there actual people who get sick and throw up? What I mean is, is it really rude to show something gross to an eating person or more part of a joke like you said, so disgusting I might throw up. Is it said in the same way someone might say "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse"? Or like someone says "I just threw up in my mouth a little" but really they didn't. What I'm trying to say is do they really mean they can't eat at the same time or just say it to dramatize?

OK, back on topic for y'all.

Yes, very different because this one was posted with the love and reverence every birth deserves.
