I would love to see pictures from everyone's births but I didn't know if those post would be considered inappropriate. My pics are pretty graphic as in full frontal with head coming out.

I was curious about this as well...

I would love to see a DDC birth pics thread!  I have all the graphic shots as well, but I also have a "family-friendly" slideshow that I can share.

I don't see why  not.  I'm sure our moderator will let us know if the pics don't meet Mothering rules.

If you're worried, maybe post as a friends only album and then we can friend you to see it?

Would love to see/share birth pics!  Maybe start it as a birth pics thread so people know what to expect?

Wow, that was amazing!  How fantastic for you to be able to share the birth with family/friends like that.  I wiped more than a few tears away while watching.

Thank you! I was hesitant at first to have a photographer there (I'm a very solitary laborer), but our photographer is a friend who knows our family well. She did an amazing job of respecting my birth space. I'm very glad I went through with having pics taken!
