This show is REALLY annoying me. Most of the women just go in and have an epidural straight away. Then they lay on their backs with their butts in the air for hours on end, and wonder why the baby isn't moving down and getting stuck. Then having to face so much medical intervention. God, if they just got up and moved their hips a little! Argh

I only have watched one episode so far - I was wondering if it was just that one or it's standard over there to have an epidural, labour on your back and no skin-to-skin contact. I guess from this thread it's normal there.

My advise... Stop watching that rubbish!

omg. I was in love with the UK version but am half way through one episode of the US one and am in tears. I have yet to experience my first birth in 11 weeks but this is just awful!! The poor mum getting told you might need c section, try after try of the vacuum popping off and bubs is stuck with heart rate dropping coz shes on the bed on her back oh dear I would have to seriously reconsider having anymore if this happened to me. I'm glad we aren't as bad as the US.
The baby even has its cord cut before mum sees or touches it?
I agree to women choosing if they want drugs etc but some common sense prevails doesn't it? Like I said I haven't been through this yet but have been doing as much research as I can and it just seems so wrong

The one that really got me was last weeks when a mum had a suspected shoulder distocia( if that's how you spell it) and they stillage her push!! Bin got stuck like they thought she would and it was horrific!! Why the frak wouldn't they take her straight for an emergency ceaser?!? Bubs head wasn't out! They forced it out!!! I was horrified!!! They highly thought that was what it was and still forced it. One of the scariest things I have ever seen!!
Hahha on a funnier not how funny was the dark grandma waiting for her daughter to have the baby!!! Lol no teeth and all she was hilarious "what in here we can take??"

Thats the one (and only!) I just watched lol she made me laugh at least. The woman in labour says it feels like the contactions in my as* and that dark grandma replied well that baby sure aint coming outta there lol.
Now I gotta go to youtube and watch a natural labour with the woman *off the bed* to reinstate my faith and make me feel better before I go to sleep lol

My hypnobirthing instructor told us to stop watching the show. It deliberately plays up the drama and hype. Also has anyone else noticed (for the uk version anyway, I haven't watched the us one) that they seem to subtly make fun of the people they are taping by filming them in a particular way or at a particular time? Not cool.
I did always love the part when the actual baby was born though....

They ALWAYS portray the husband as non supportive and making fun of the mum in labor.
But the baby at the end is the beautiful thing.
The American one I just can't believe that they walk into the hospital and he on the bed. Oh well I will continue to watch it. I hope they go into Aussie hospitals.... Lol
