Will you record the birth?
I am packing my video camera. I hope there is somewhere I can prop it up and just record from transition through birth, otherwise I don't know how DH is going to manage taking picture, recording, and being there to sooth me at the same time. I was completley against videoing Haydon's birth, but I totally regret it! I would LOVE to go back and watch him come into the world!

Re: Will you record the birth?
I'm only going to record if DH hasn't made it here from Afghanistan...if he's here, it'll just be pictures!

Re: Will you record the birth?
It will depend on the hospital. Most of the hospitals around here won't allow video recordings of the birth because of malpractice threats. I may end up with pics but no video.

Re: Will you record the birth?
nope. I have video from C, but the hosp I'm at won't allow video. just still photos. and even if they did. I don't want another video of birth/labor

i hope that my mum will be there to record it, i want a vid of her coming up from the water so much! no idea what the hospital would say about it but my friend is hopefully delivering the baby, so she won't mind.

Riverside won't allow video of the birth....which makes no sense since they film One Born Every Minute there!! Grrrrrr Oh well. Pictures will have to do!

Re: Will you record the birth?
Ok this is news to me! I had no idea that some hospitals don't allow videoing! I'm not even going to ask, I'm just going to pack it and prop it up somewhere without telling them, I think that's bogus that they can tell you not to record the birth of your child. I guess it is a little invasive to the nurses though if they don't want to be recorded on video. Hmm...

Re: Will you record the birth?
Hell no I will not record it. However, I am bringing my video recorder for everything afterwards. :)

Re: Will you record the birth?
My hospital just specifies that video has to be done from head-down....so no shots from the legs up.

photos afterwards

Re: Will you record the birth?
I'm not sure. I have been considering it, but I'd also have to just set the camera somewhere and let it go, since it'll be just me, DH, and my midwife, but I don't think there's anywhere to put it close enough to the tub. So I'll be perfectly happy with pictures, and maybe we can do some recording after the birth :)

Re: Will you record the birth?
No, we won't be, just a personal preference I guess.

Re: Will you record the birth?
Nope. We took photos afterwards last time, which is just fine with me.

Re: Will you record the birth?
DH wants to record it....I don mind, even as Ava is coming out, I dont mind but the stupid hospital won't allow it. We can only basically record after baby is out, of course pictures will come first and video second.

Re: Will you record the birth?
No. I have no desire. I've been asked if I wanted to watch in the mirror...but I've declined. And I don't have a video camera anyways.

Re: Will you record the birth?
We set the camera up and just let it record the last couple of times. I guess we'll do that again this time. (There are no camera restrictions @ my house. :lol:)

Re: Will you record the birth?
Not in our hospital. You can video everything up until the birth and just after, but that's it. I also don't know how much I would want recorded. I'd rather have tons of pictures taken. Will probably take short clips on my camera, but leave the video camera at home.

Re: Will you record the birth?
I dont want to see it. I may or may not regret it later but for now that is my choice.

My sister is going to photo the whole thing though (nothing from legs down) but she will be there to capture the first moments and our first family moments together.
