I had to share with some appreciative mamas. My DH and I were watching the Discovery Health Channel and they had the coolest video of a UC birth. It was a show called "Amazing Babies". Most stories were about babies born in cars on the way to the hospital, babies who need surgery right out of the womb, etc.

This story centered around a mother having a twin homebirth. I believe it was originally with a MW, but turned into a UC. She birthed Baby A UC and then when she started with Baby B she found out he was breech! Just to see that little foot hanging down. It was too much. Anyway, she kept calm and birthed Baby B just fine. A twin UC with one breech. Compeletly amazing! I shudder to think what would have happened if she had been at a hospital.

You should have seen my DH I'm just turning him on to all of this natural birth stuff (in preparation for our own little one) and he was just amazed. I told him, "Look at the power of women's bodies". He totally agreed. I think he was a bit awed, I know I was.

Mama to my beautiful Ana Carolina (2/07), Isabel Cristina (6/10), and #3 on the way in August 2013!

I saw that show too. That was the best part. I think at one point the husband asked off-camera what he should do, and she replied "do nothing!" and I thought "yay!"
