Wow, that's random. I only wish they'd put baby up on mama's chest!

Here is a hint: who was congratulated? Who was shown to be panicky?

What about the discrepancy between OB practices and emergency childbirth practices?

The mom did great, but was given hardly any attention. The baby wasn't immediately given to the mom, and I don't like how the placenta was basically pulled out right as they were saying not to pull anything.

That was really weird. Where did it come from?

Yeah, interesting how he just let it happen, told her to relax and encouraged her, so natural!

That is the weirdest video! I can name quite a bit that was wrong with the video. Having a hard time thinking there is anything right here, if there is, please point it out.

First off why is the other woman holding onto the mother's head? And yes the mom is the one they seem to be telling to relax and calm down. They say not to grab the baby and be gentle, but the ambulance guy seems to be pulling on the head and then when they say don't pull the placenta out, he looks very much like he's yanking on the cord and squeezing it. And his massaging looks pretty pathetic and the statement "There is rarely a case of hemorrhaging"? Or something like that. Then here, here's a bandaid on your vagina, that will be enough. And of course he was the one congratulated at the end even though SHE had the baby.

Good things:
Mama was in control - not shown to be crazy/out of control like so many 'emergency childbirths'.
No cord clamping!

nice how the mom happened to be shaved during this "emergency". Note the "officer" didn't have gloves on. He pulled the placenta out. Baby was just hanging out on the seat the entire time, must've been a warm night because nobody was rushing to warm him up. I did like how nobody acted like it was a big deal that the baby wasn't really crying, and there was no rush to clamp and cut the cord...

looks like a planned out of hospital birth to me. lol

who would sign up to birth in the back of a (fake?) ambulance so it could be filmed for an educational video??

hated that the baby was just laying there. and it must have been for at least the amount of time for the placenta to be detached (and yanked out)

that was hilarious! i too find the discrepency btwn "emergency" birth education and hospital/OB practices ridiculous. I'd rather have a birth like that in the back of my car than walk into most hospitals!! LOL poor little baby laying on the seat though....altho, my hubby says in his EMT training they always said to put baby on mom to keep warm.

I just have to ask because the title describes EXACTLY what I found myself doing.
