Well, here's a quote from that friend who wants a water birth,

"are you trying to kill me? :>) that was so beautiful! wow. what a great video. :>) it made me cry. the women looked so content."

My kids have watched it four times now. I think they're addicted. My 5.5 yo dd says, "Look mama, the daddy caught that one!"

and my 4 yo ds said, "Wow, mama that Lady sure is having lots of babies!"

Mama to two awesome kids. Wife to a wonderful, attached, loving husband. I love my job-- I'm a Midwife, Doula and Childbirth Educator, Classes forming now!

Pam, I just saw this, and it's amazing. Thank you. I'm in tears.

Ditto...it's made me even more excited for our planned home birth. Thank you for posting this. It's beautiful. I feel sad that my friends & I never saw anything like this when I was in college...to find out, at that age, that a peaceful homebirth is a possibility...wow. I think, had we seen something like your presentation, a lot of my friends who had births with standard interventions might have experienced something very different.

But I digress. Beautiful, thank you all you mamas who were brave enough to share those picturews with us!
