See….this is the shit they never showed me in sex ed. I’m 27 and I suddenly lost all desire to have a kid. I’ll just continue to adopt puppies.
Hey thenerdangels, I think that it is great that you are gonna think twice before having a kid! I wish more people could know what is fully involved before committing…
I on the other hand think this is an A.M.A.Z.I.N.G video showing how beautifully mom’s perinium stretches to birth her baby. Slow, steady - her body knows EXACTLY what to do, and yes, the baby does fit!! I really love how slow she goes and how no one is screaming, “PUSH!” Mom can feel everything, get into whatever position she wants and that minimizes tearing. And, just incase there are any pregnant mamas or expecting papas out there who are put off by this video, you need to remember, that when you are watching your body, or your lady, or your baby being born, it is a very different experience than watching a stranger give birth… unless you are a true birth junkie like me!! LOL!!!
Things that help reduce likelihood of tearing:
- Not using pain medication — being able to feel your body’s sensations
- NOT having directed pushing, but rather pushing as you have the urge
- Being able to get into the positions that utilize gravity and feel comfortable for you (ie. probably not being on your back)
This is one of the first birth videos I saw! I love that it shows what people would generally consider “a lot” of blood but nobody panics about it. Also the moment right after when they grab their baby gets me EVERY time.
