Thank you for sharing the clip! I totally missed when it aired. Deidre
Recorded and watched it last night and while I was glad it was finally aired and much of it I thought was good there were a few things I didn't like...I think the segment about the "fake babies" was strange (to each his own) but more importantly shouldn't have been lumped in a program with other issues that do need serious attention and coverage!!!!Also - I was seriously disappointed with their last segment. They mixed together shots and discussion of unassisted birth with shots from "The Business of Being Born," (which depicts only midwife-attended births.) THERE IS A *HUGE* DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GIVING BIRTH AT HOME ALONE AND GIVING BIRTH AT HOME WITH A MIDWIFE! The segment failed to address this CRITICAL difference and gave viewers the impression that everyone who "does it at home" does so without any trained attendant present. In reality, the vast majority of women who choose homebirth hire a skilled and nationally certified midwife for prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care! And while women should be free to make either choice for themselves, when educating the public I feel the distinction DOES need to me made clear!!! After all, the people who DO know the difference are probably the ones who DON'T need the "education" after all!!! I WAS YELLING AT THE TV AS I WATCHED THIS SEGMENT OF THE SHOW!!! VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING - I HAD SUCH HIGH HOPES!!! :-(Wondering what your thoughts were?????
Likewise, thank you. I had wanted to view it but was out of town. Just one more reason to go natural, eh? ;)
Thank you for sharing this clip. I had a c/s with my first son and a natural VBAC with the 2nd and, while I didn't have an orgasm (!), It was not what I would call painful. I remember looking at my doula and saying something along the lines of "that's it?" It wasn't EASY, but it was much less 'painful' than I could have ever imagined. My nurses thought I was whacky when I was telling them I couldn't wait to do it again.
I was so excited to see that they mentioned hypnosis for childbirth. Most moms who use it are not "trying" for an orgasmic birth. But most who use it have a more comfortable birth. I have seen orgasmic birth and enjoyed it. You can read my review at www.hypnobabiesblog.org
