    Default 36 weeks first time mum - Am I silly to watch one born every minute?

    I love it. DH sometimes watches it with me. It freaks him out a bit though.

    I watched while pregnant with DS and still enjoy it now.

    I agree with others in that I think it's educational to watch the whole series just to see how varied birth experiences are. I think that way you have realistic expectations that birth can happen in many different ways and woman cope with it differently as well. That way your mind is open to more than one type of birth for yourself.

    Definitely continue reading Birth Skills, an excellent book! I used so many techniques from that book and found that understanding my labour really made a difference to how I managed.

    I remember that epsiode. Yeah I do think she was abit over dramatic, considering she was only 2cm, I didn't even scream like that when I was fully dilated and pushing! I think she made it worse by fighting it, so that's a good lesson, don't be so afraid of the pain and try and go with it, carrying on like she was only made it worse. I think they wouldn't even give her an epidural because she wasn't even in establised labour?
    I liked the uk one, it's more like our hospital system I think, the US one isn't imo.

    I used to love this show but tried watching for the first time this pregnancy my third and ended up in tears to DH saying, I just can't do this again! It kind brought it all back...the pain that is. Needless to say, I haven't watched it since. I think it is good as it is very real , for first timers, especially the English one. The American one it seems everyone just has epidurals!

    I love love love OBEM but definitely the UK one - unless you want to see 50 women having epidurals the moment the walk in the door or elective c-sects I wouldn't bother.
    **disclaimer** I have nothing against epidurals and c-sects just doesn't make interesting telly IMO
    As PPs said you definitely should watch a few episodes to get a wider view.
    Was Lydia the fashion designer in the red cozzie? She didn't make a peep!!! And I want one of those cozzies for next time!!
