Monty Python Clip

OK most of you all know that i am a home birth advocate. there is a time for hospitals, but only 5-10% of births need them. everyone else would be safer, yes, SAFER at home where there is less stress, mommy is already immune to the germs, the midwife stays in the room the whole time instead of popping in and out like a doctor, and techy "interventions" that cause complications (pitocin, cytotec, pain killers, stirrups, forceps, vacuums, etc.) are not available.

everytime i watch this video, i can't decide if i should laugh or cry. it is done by monty python. their humor is to take something normal and tweak it just barely enough to make it funny. this is a skit of a hospital birth and i am not sure they tweaked it enough (or at all) to not make it real. I have had four hospital births and three home births (#four will be this october). this clip is way too close to the truth.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
