AFA the "no prenatal care equals baby danger" from the show........ I think the show is proof that women can and do go about their "normal" lives and being pregnant is not an illness that needs to be micro-managed. Neither is birth. Almost all of the babies are born healthy, term, little to no birth intervention or ICU. The message of the show to ME is "relax, it's fine. Yes, you can ride that ride at disneyland, you're not going to hurt anything".
And this is a new SERIES not just a special! Not sure how many episodes they'll do, but they are advertising it as a series. I love it!
The most annoying thing I find, that I wish the moms knew was to NOT WORRY when the baby doesn't immediately cry or breathe. He/she is not "sick", they are simply still attached to the mother! Even the paramedics seems to be so relieved when they FINALLY cut the cord and the baby starts breathing. Oh my.
I've seen at least 3 of these specials, and they have only aired one with a sad outcome. But they didn't address it during the show, it was before the credits it said "This show is dedicated to........" and it was a twin. Very sad........ I saw it at least 3 yrs ago for the first time, but I know it reaired recently.
But anyway, all that to say, I love this show! lol
