I watched the first episode and I was not crazy about it. I don't like over-dramatized births.

I dont have satellite or cable so I get to watch things like this six or more years later when they aren't cool anymore! LOL...I used to love watching birth shows when we DID have that stuff....but at the same time...I just loved the babies on them lol...I usually didn't care for the view on the shows....I did watch one once that was great....a mom gave birth vaginally to twins (something you didn't see on the shows often) and she did it drug free....I was rootin' for her LOL

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I watched the first three episodes and said "that's it, I'm done" I cannot stand how they show the cameras all the time and make the noises of them moving. It's all over dramatic and those ladies definitely haven't had a birth that I would want as my own.

I watched a couple episodes but it made me so mad. The nurses on that show act like there is no way other than drugs for a childbirth. They talk down to anyone who wants to hold off or (god forbid) go natural.

I hated the first episode. I laughed at the ignorance of medical staff about birth and that it happens with or without all those unessesary interventions and how they were causing more probs than preventing.

The second was a bit better and more entertaining. I just have to grit my teeth sometimes watching any kind of birth show as it just irritates me allthe overdramatizing they do and my biggest pet peeve... The couting loud at you as you are pushing!!! I guess in first time moms or those with epidural or those that obviously aren't pushing effectively, maybe a bit of coaching but they act like the baby wont come out unless they are shouting 1, 2, 3, 4, .. at you as you push.

I watch it. It makes me annoyed to see that they just lay there in bed. I really enjoyed watching the teen couple though, the emotion and excitment was great. I liked seeing that the boyfriend was there for her and the moment the girl had with her dad was priceless.
