Outlaw Births

Here is more on the video I wish was available to the U.S. It doesn't surprise me that another countries media has the ovaries to air something as controversial as this. :o)

nicole, i have to admit i sit on the fence about unassisted births...but the more you post and the more i watched, not only am i in absolute awe at the strength of these women but also their bravery and courage. and this one in particular touches still a grieving part of me and my 3yr daughter's birth. this is the birth i would have like to have had...

peace,
lil

I can't believe they had the ovaries to air this either... you are quite possibly the funniest person I know...
thanks for sharing, what a beautiful birth, the mom was so in control of herself.

Lil - thanks for the comment! I agree, there are many women (the majority, actually) that u/a birth would NOT be a good decision for. But, on the other hand, just as I believe that homebirth, hospital birth, and birth center birth should all be options for women, so do I believe that u/a is a valid option... more than ever, a woman needs educational and emotional support when she chooses this route - while also being understanding and completely accepting of the risks.

How beautiful was that birth, though?!

Awesome birth! She was so positive in her psyche, and knew she could do it, was very laid back. Beautiful!!
