How i that for a thread title! lmao

Anyway, it is on "Girlfriends" on UPN. I turned it on a bit into the show and am still watching now. This show has ticked me off before but so far it is cool to see a Mama in a birth pool in a house. I will keep watching but now the CST and PST Mamas have a heads up...

I hope it is a positive show!

Bummer. I saw a homebirth on the Noggin show, Degrassi and it was a bit annoying because the pregnant mom kept doing these drills to make sure her family was ready. She was having a homebirth, so everything had to be in place. Isn't that the point of a homebirth, that you are on your own time schedule? Although thinking of my homebirth, maybe a little more preparation would have been in order. Anyway, she did have the baby at home in her living room on a mattress. A birthing pool would have been cool.
