I was SO in love w/ yesterday's episode!!! The mom was a UBB/NFB rep and did a little show for some friends (didn't see any cloth diapers though). And she had a great, natural, low intervention birth!!! I was so excited b/c I'd basically given up on the show after seeing so many bad ones. She had CNMs in the hosp., tried the tub, listened to her body, SAT UP and used a birthing stool to push!!! That was the most amazing part b/c you never see that, even w/ home births on tv. No rush to cut cord and separate baby...I could've just cried... haha!<br><br>
Anyway, just had to share!!! I was in such shock yesterday I couldn't take my eyes off the tv.<br><br>

I have some episodes of Baby Story on tape from several years ago. One is a homebirth in a hot tub and another is a birth center rocking chair birth. They are my kids' favorites! My kids, from watching A Baby Story with me, know everything NOT to do while in labor/birthing and all the *wrong* statements that OBs and nurses say because I usually talk to the tv (ok....rant to the tv) while watching the "usual" Baby Story episodes.<br><br>
We don't have cable, but my parents are on vacation next week, so I'll hopefully be able to tape some episodes to add to my collection. Maybe they'll show a decent one!

I saw one about a woman who had a Bradley birth--no interventions!<br><br>
Yay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
All the other ones I've seen make me sad, though.

That's the only reason I watch that show is sometimes I actually get to see a episode like that. I keep hoping I'll see a waterbirth, homebirth, or even a hospital birth that doesn't force interventions on moms. Every once and a while I'm rewarded for my patience.

ARGGGHHH!!!! I read that she was going to be on there "sometime in the winter/spring" I watched "Baby Story" every day for months. I haven't watched in two weeks because I figured it just wasn'tgoing to air and now it does!! How frustrating<br>
Namaste, Tara

I would have liked to have seen that one. Thanks for sharing. Maybe now I'll try tuning in again - I had given up on them.

I watched that episode the other day too. (the only one I've watched this whole pregnancy! I was peeved though when the preview for the next segment after a commercial break showed her gasping "I need drugs, I need drugs!!". It seemed so unnecessary, given that it wasn't reflective of the birth at all.

Ya know I've seen several water births on A Baby Story........not recently thought, but I have seen them. It seems like they'll play a bunch of episodes with c-sections.......and then they'll have a couple of natural births.
