Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, and certainly very instructional on how one delivers a baby at home whose shoulders get stuck. My husband is making a much longer video from our video camera with interviews with me and the kids and my mom etc... but this is just from the pictures that my mom took and that birthdancedoula took. to birthdancedoulas fantastic photography skills.. she is one multitalented woman!

Thought those at mothering would appreciate it, and everyone else would be totally horror stricken.

So, all access. Not my best angle, but here you go...

For those of you waiting to watch it - it really wasn't graphic at all. It was just pictures of a beautiful birth!

Psht, that was SO not graphic! You were even wearing a tshirt in the tub!

Thanks for sharing, it was great. I wish I had more pics/video from my birth, I didn't want many lights on, so everything is very dark in my pics.

not in your ddc, but jealous nonetheless. i didn't find it icky or anything, you couldn't tell from the pics that there were any "stuck shoulders" or anything. i like how the first few pics were repeated, it gave a good feeling of "labor time warp" congratulations. (i watched with no sound, maybe that would have made it icky or something?

I'm not so much worried to watch it, but it's more of a jealousy thing right now. I am soooo scared and anxious about going to the hospital (not to mention I'm not crazy about my ob's). I think it would make me cry right now.
But I'm really looking forward to seeing it mama! And congrats. (((hugs)))

I also didn't think anything overly graphic about it it, for me it was simply a gorgeous montage of a beautiful and peaceful home birth!
