Taped most of it with my first, my husband was deployed and wanted him to see it. Didn't tape the second one, he came very fast and we even forgot the camera the first few minutes.

IMO that is bullshit. If you want your birth filmed or pictures of it, then its your right. Stupid as to why they have rules like that in place.

I totally agree. I was beyond sad when they saw us pull out the camera with my first and they told us that as soon as I was ready to push the camera had to be turned off and put in a bag. I needed a csection anyway. I was so bummed.

Mine allowed it but I honestly did not want to see what was happening down there at the time and now I regret not doing it with my first. He was taking right to the NICU and I always feel awful about not knowing what he looked like when he was first born I hate that feeling.



My second was an emergency C-section I at least got pictures so I am happy but still wish I would have told someone to record it. Next time I will.

I taped my little brother being born. Started right when he was crowning and ended after he came out. I wouldn't want to video any before or delivering the placenta, but it would be nice to see it after the fact, since I would of passed out if I would of seen it while I was delivering....
