I have stopped watching Baby Story. They only seem to show births that they can edit to have some kind of drama and the drama always seems to involve epidurals, c/s and other interventions etc.
The last straw for me was this one where the woman was having twins and basically they did a c/s because mom didn't want to try pushing. She was a 10 in the OR getting ready for the c/s and the doc asked her, "are you sure you don't want to try pushing these babies out, just a couple pushes to see how you do" and she said something like - no, I'm too tired. I just couldn't watch anymore after that.
PS - DS#1 was a vacuum assisted birth and I had no episiotomy. I ended up with just a small tear.
