Does anyone else watch this show? What do you think about it?


All of the births taken place at the Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN


Lately, I've tended to like it more than "A Baby Story", which should really be called "A C-Section Story". I've seen more unmedicated births on BFD and also more CNMs who seem to explain things more than the OBs seem to. However, like ABS, there are moments when I want to hurl something at the tv.


When a woman does manage to have an unmedicated birth, she still delivers the baby flat on her back with her legs being propped up. What's the deal with that??


Also, on today's episode, there was a woman who was induced at 41 weeks for post-dates. At one point, the CNM said that she had been given THREE doses of cytotec. THREE. jaw.gif    She then had a c-section later for the baby's heartrate not coming back up to acceptable levels.
