haha my first thought when i saw this title was “ewww!” i’m so terrified of labor and the potential for pooping on yourself.

but really, that’s such a beautiful thing! it must have been so exciting!

I videotaped a friend giving birth to her son about six years ago. It was a little awkward – “So, how zoomed in would you like me to get….” When he finally came out (her labor was 57 hours long – no, that’s not a typo), it was awesome.

For those wondering – she really wanted to not have a C-section. She and the baby were being monitored very closely for signs of distress, and right before they decided it was time for surgery, she was finally fully dilated and able to push.

I was lucky enough to watch my little sister give birth to my nephew 3 months ago and after having 2 children of my own I still didn’t know what to expect. I however LOVED it and feel so blessed to have been able to witness such a miracle!

My first thought was “ewwww” like Kitsy, but birthing scenes in movies/on tv make me uncomfortable so i can’t imagine watching in real life. haha. But that’s really great that you enjoyed it! I imagine that if I’m ever in the L&D room, then I’d be staying by the head. I’m a wuss.

If everything goes as planned, I get to photograph a birth next month! I’m beyond excited!

Congrats! It really is such an amazing thing. I was lucky enough to get to see a baby be born during my L&D rotation in nursing school. It was very emotional and a moment I will probably never forget.

@oracle: Like others, my first thought was “ew” because I have seen the Miracle of Birth educational movie a few times and found it really hard to watch. I’m glad you enjoyed your experience though and were able to provide the mother with some shots that she wanted! Congrats to your friend!
