Just thought some of you might want to check this out.
TLC has a homebirth/waterbirth on A Baby Story today at 1:00. It's nice to see something like this on a mainstream show since so many of the births they show are hospital/medical/managed births.
My midwife told me that one of these shows once featured a homebirth of twins that was attended by a midwife she knew. She said that despite the fact that everything went great, the show made it seem like everything turned out okay despite x, y, and z (x, y, and z being drama that they created).
Every once in awhile, I'll tune in to one of those shows, and every time I am annoyed by how they make birth out to be a medical crisis. (Of course, once in awhile there IS a medical crisis involved, but with most births there's not.)
whenyouseesparks:Ok up until this point I have strictly been a lurker but I just had to say, that was my midwife Vicky! She's awesome!
That's so cool!
