    I mean… when exactly do you plan on ever watching it again?!?! No one wants to see lady bits pushing out a baby on a tv screen after it happens! I want no photographic evidence of the state I was in between the onset of labor and when I get to shower afterwards. If someone wants that power to them but who do they expect to watch it? The kid??

    My mom has/had one for me and my brother. It’s not like the graphic giving birth TV shows. It’s mostly immediately after the birth, so things like first bath and meeting family members.

    @VAwife:  I’m up for this kind of video, I think that would really capture the special moments, though I wouldn’t consider it a birth film. 

    I do not want one of the baby actually coming out. I don’t know a single person who has actually video taped it and I know lots of people with kids.

    I had a friend who videotaped the whole birth. I’m talking the dad with video camera in one hand, her leg in the other. And yes they watched it again later….why you would want to, I have no idea. Then again this same girl didn’t know that sometimes you poop during the pushing, and was mortified when it happened – I wonder if they got that on film?! lol

    I have a son who is almost 5 years old.  I am telling you ladies, you do NOT want a during labor video.  You are NOT at your best.  Now I do have a friend who had a special birth photographer present.  Photographs are much more forgiving than a video.   For me though, I did not want to be photographed or video taped.  Now that it has been 5 years, I wish I had more pictures of those very first special moments…. glad I don’t have a video though. haha

    I had pictures of my children being born, but no film. I did see my best friend’s birth fiim. It was really different to be on that end of it…literally. I think you have to be real secure with urself to want that forever on film.

    I didn’t. I couldn’t imagine having someone else in the room at that time… and with a video camera!? ahhh. I couldn’t stand to watch it again either, I’d probably have sympathy pain for my past self… and scare myself away from more babies EVER.

    I did however do a photo story for my baby sister, her boyfriend and their daughter! One of the top 5 moments of my life! I was so happy to be allowed in the room with them for the entire experience.

    God no. Why in the world would I want to do that? Take a few pictures and maybe a short iPhone video of the kid (NOT ME) soon after birth but that’s it. Why would anyone want to be captured on film during and after shooting a baby out of her vajayjay? No thank you.

    I find it strange TBH. Some things should be private.

    The majority of hospitals won’t allow pictures/video taken during the actual birth. You can take pictures/video while laboring and after the baby comes out, but not during pushing & delivery.

    I wouldn’t want that anyway. I don’t want pictures of my hoo-ha with a baby sticking halfway out! We got great pictures (and some pretty terrible ones too, I looked like crap!) after the baby was born of him getting weighed, me holding him, etc.
