Dh watched one birth toward the end with me. I fully plan on having him watch the entire thing. I learned so much. I am so thankful for all of you who suggested it for him (and me)! I think this will be a great tool for him to open up to me and ask questions and for him to have questions ready to talk with the midwife. This may be just what we need to fully prepare over the next few months for our natural birth (free standing birth center)
She has stated she will be doing another show on the topic more geared towards intact. I read both her boys are intact
I became a big Ricky fan after BOBB, and was excited when I heard she was getting a show.. And then she did the circumcision topic, kinda killed the party for me.. But glad to see she is back & in the spot light to bring awareness to natural birth.
you should watch the second one, More Business Of Being Born.
I actually love Ricki Lake and she is a huge natural birth advocate and a doula, I even watch her show she has now.

Good to know!
Quoting Mrs.Salz: Pregnant in America, as mentioned, is another good one - iirc it doesn't have any nude birth scenes like BOBB does so some men are more comfortable watching or starting with that one.

I have to confess. The whole reason why I became a believer in home birth and natural parenting was because of that documentary. It really taught me a lot and now I am so glad I watched it. I would have been so blind to everything that is happening. I'm glad others feel the same way I do! :)
