Would You Watch A Birth Live on the Internet?
I was lucky enough to be at the bedside for the birth of a friend of mine's son. It was the most amazing, beautiful, disgusting thing I have ever witnessed.
Pregnant with my second child at the time, it did help me visualize the birthing process which was still a mystery to me after my labour-less C-section at 37 weeks the first time around. I wanted to return the favour and have friends at my bedside but my husband overruled - fearing issues both medical and emotional.
For many pregnant moms, the idea of having someone watch the birth is abhorrent, but others, like my friend, have a "more the merrier" attitude. But this Ottawa mom is going further than inviting a few pals over. She is live-streaming her birth for those who sign up at her website.
