Most of the ad is women laboring. Of course they are all on their backs, in a hospital, looking scared at someone to the side of the camera, etc. Then the babies appear and they are happy, and the voice over says something like "from those of use who work second-hardest for babies".<br><br>
I did like that they showed women from many ethnic backgrounds.<br><br>
It just reinforced for me all of our stereotypes about birth in the US.

I didn't really get a "looking scared" vibe off of the ad, but I suppose it's all about perception. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I saw it too and just shook my head, one woman was leaning forward and I thought, "Oh good! A birthing ball!" and then she threw herself back to laying down.
