watching babies being born... ♥T-D-A♥ 17 kids; Michigan 1892 posts
24th Apr '12

Makes me cry my eyes out. Every. Single. Time.. no matter if it's on tv (baby story) or a link to someones birth video on BG. It's so beautiful! Please tell me I'm not the only one.



After my horrible c-section in January I swore over and over and over again I'd never have another child. Now I don't even care... the pain and suffering was totally worth it and I'd do it again in a heart beat.



Oh.. and if anyone has any birth videos they'd like to share... I'd love to watch... and cry some more.

You're certainly not the only one. Childbirth is truly an amazing process.

I watch Baby Story like 3 times a day; SO says " I don't know why you watch this, you already have a baby. "



I love watching it because my labor was actually, the best day of my life. I got to watch my baby boy come out for a bit and it's in my mind forever and I will always treasure the memory. <3

oh good I'm not the only one! SO thinks I'm weird because I like watching birthing videos. He gets freaked out every time I'm watching one and says it's gross. Pfffft. MEN.

Am I the only person who thinks it's kind of gruesome?



I mean, the fact that a child is being born, hey that's great. And mama holding her child for the first time, that's very moving.



But the act of baby coming out, is rather violent and messy.

I didn't cry when my own babies were born and I didn't cry when I was the birth coach for my best friend whom I've known since we were 3 years old. Totally thought I would, but didn't! Oh, and I don't have a birth video (the doctor wouldn't let my cousin record it for legal reasons incase something went wrong). But she took TONS of pics, I mean, full on frontal view, baby coming out, you see everything! But I don't think anyone wants to see those LOL

No, it grosses me out. My husband was grossed out too, lmao. I have seen a couple births in person and I told him with our first to stay by my head. He went ahead and looked anyway and did NOT make that same mistake with our second :lol:.

LOL!



I had all C-sections and two of those were emergencies, so Steve could only witness the birth of one of our kids, but he stood up the whole time and watched them gut me.



He said he would look down there where they are literally pulling me apart, and then look back at my face, I'm just laying there trying not to fall asleep.



He said it was "interesting."

I bawled my eyes out when my son was born. They kept asking me if I could hear him crying... and I couldn't because there was so much noise all around me (there was about 10-15+ people in the room. Residents sitting in to observe the surgery) and I was so drugged up. I was so upset and I just started bawling my eyes out. Then they quieted down and showed him to me and I started crying even harder. He was so so so beautiful and perfect. I cried the entire time I held him for the first time, too (2 hours after he was born). We got no pictures of his birth because doctors made my SO sit outside after they thought he started looking green. They were afraid he was going to pass out. :cry:

I've seen c-sections on tv, not IRL, but IMO they're less gross looking, lol. I just think...Vaginas should not get that big :(.

Really? My ex kept telling me he didn't want to look but when it came time he definitely looked. He said it looked like the baby was trying to come out of my butt LMAO! But he also said if we had another he wanted to deliver it himself so it must not have been that gross!
