Is about a home birth right now... its only 10 minutes into it, and I'm wondering if it will be a successful home birth, or end up as a transfer as they normally do on TV.

Well I'm happy to report that baby was born at home! She had a water birth and it was the same tub that I'm using for my birth, so that was nice to see! hehe

I was happy to see a successful home water birth on tv! I hope this is a lead to more people wanting to film their home births at home

I was very happy to see it go well too! i will admit to thinking the worst to begin with, that it would end up in a transfer and home births would be cast in an awful light... but all in all it was a great episode!

I was watching it too, and I was so happy that they didn't make it all scary. They really portrayed how calm everything was. I loved how the older girls were brought into the room, and the mom just grunted a little, and there was baby! I hate watching the episodes where the mom is having a natural birth and just screaming/yelling, and the narrator is all like "can she handle the pain?" then she ends up getting an epi and saying "Oh, now I can enjoy it" I think that's sad. I mean every birth is beautiful, but I think it's sad that the mom wasn't taught to succumb to her body and enjoy the process naturally, kwim? she needs drugs to "enjoy" the coming of her baby.

LOL That's my little rant. This was a good episode, and I was very happy to see it. It was encouraging to me!

I'm West Coast so my time is off from you guys, but I have A Baby Story on right now and it's a home birth. She just got in the tub and I'm hoping she succeeds with her birth. I'm pretty sure it's a different one then you all watched because she just has a little boy and Jess said that her girls were in the room.

That is the one that I saw today She had a little boy already, lives on the beach, the m/w did end up breaking her water, but still it was a beautiful birth. I loved they showed her friend crying!

Yep that's the one! I was worried in the beginning that she'd transfer since she was 1cm and seemed to be having trouble getting thru the contractions, but she ended up doing great!

Aw, I saw a different one then! That's kind of awesome. The one I saw, the woman was having her fourth child. The mom just said "she's crowning" and the older girls were brought in, then there was a baby!

It's good that there are a few examples out there that depict it positively
