    I was in tears too. Must have been very scary.
    The ladies having twins look so happy & excited!

    Do they all have epidurals straight away? The filming seems to have started after epidurals

    I didn't watch it tonight but from the episodes I have seen, I totally agree. It's like they just expect and assume that everyone will have an epidural. Not that there's anything wrong with epidurals (I had one myself) but it just seems so bizarre how they don't even wait for the women to ask for one sometimes.

    Yeah within the first 5 mins of the first ep a mw said "why would you not have an epidural? You wouldn't go to the dentist and not have Novocain" I have been struggling through trying to watch as much as it irks me. But I am studying to be a middie so need to be ok with intervention when women want it and I think it's helping in some sick way LOL

    But that shoulder dystocia was very scary!! Poor mum!

    Was talking to mum about this (nurse/midwife) and she said its because it's so litigious, they do them basically as insurance :/

    I love that show. But then, I've been obsessed with ANYTHING pregnancy or baby related since becoming pregnant, lol.
    It's differnt, I certainly didn't have my feet up in stirrups giving birth! But I love seeing people sharing different experiences in childbirth.
    Can't wait for my turn in 5 weeks!! Was on thr phone to my mum as we were watching, she said "I don't know how you can stand to watch this knowing it'll be you soon, all that pain!"
    But it honestly doesn't bother me- I'm a realist, haha. I can't avoid it now or pretend it isn't going to happen!

    When I first got to the hospital and was lying in bed, the midwife said to me that the anaesthetist was on the floor giving ladies the epidural and was going to leave soon, and whether I wanted one. So yeah they technically didn't wait for me to ask

    I hope your all aware that they choose the most dramatic births to show you. I'm from the US and no one I know has ever had something like that happen.
