Wow…. that would be so amazing! How great that everyone was able to be there without being there!

We should look into this for our home birth that we’re wanting to do… that way I don’t have to worry about being distracted but at the same time letting everyone experience it!

Woohoo I got an idea. lol

At first, I was really scared of this post. But I think it’s a nice idea to get everyone together if they can’t physically be there.

I can see the appeal, but I wouldn’t do this.

Yeah, I just think it seems odd – and can you imagine if things had gone wrong, the terror your family would feel watching people panicking, running around, seeing a blue baby etc … and not being able to ask questions, or get a good sense of what is happening!

I am not so sure about this. The only reason I would do this is if for some reason my husband was in another country or something during a birth. But everyone is different….

i think some things should remain private/sacred. this is one of them.

I know someone who did it because her husband was in Iraq at the time of the birth, so they skyped in her husband. 


To me, that would be the only acceptable use of skype in a birthing room.

For those who want to share that moment with those that are close to them, but can’t be there, I think it’s a wonderful idea.  However, it’s definitley not for me, and not something I want to witness.  My little sister is expecting her first child and while she is one of my best friends in the whole world, I have zero desire to be there when my nephew is born.

Not for me at all. I think giving birth is such a private, intimate moment for a couple only. Then share the joy afterwards. I get weirded out though by people FB births. My question is if you show it live what about the possibility of complications and something going wrong? I wouldn’t want someone to have to see that.

For me, I don’t even want my parents / family to know I’m in LABOR let alone having them WATCH it on skype. But it sounds like it’s a really awesome way for those that can’t physically be there to well, be there.

Just the idea of this makes me shudder. All I can think of is the Scrubs episode where they accidentally broadcast Carla’s birth to the entire hospital instead of just her family. I really don’t want anyone except my husband seeing me in labor, either in person or otherwise. Way too invasive.

Thats cool. I get the idea. Not for me, I am so happy just my fiance was there. But neat idea nonetheless.

I think most of my Family will be at the Hospital with me. So, I’m not sure who I would do it for. But the idea itelf is really amazing.
