    Default Discovery Health: "Freebirthing" Sunday at Noon

    I just thought I would post in case you are interested in watching. The description says, "Women are opting to have babies without drugs, midwives or medical support." It's coming on 12noon Eastern Time.

    Jade, I'm really not sure. Sometimes if you go to the website they will play full episodes, but normally I think it is a day or so after it airs.

    It is about unassisted births. For a while I thought that I wanted an unassisted birth, but I've since changed my mind for numerous reasons - not because of watching the show. I actually really enjoyed the show, but I think it's just too risky, personally. It's way better than watching those horrible hospital birth shows!

    We don't get that channel, it comes with a more expensive Dish package than the one we have. This special premiered about a year ago. I've never seen it, but I've read reviews. It is about unassisted birth. It follows three women through their planned UC's.

    yes unassisted childbirth is also called freebirthing.. and what i'm planning for this one for various reasons.

    I can't find anything on the website, but i'll look around.. thanks. It may be better I don't watch it.. It'll probably just piss me off.

    I really liked it, but there were some parts of the interviews with medical personnel that aggravated me. All three women had wonderful births though.

    It's not for me at this point in my life, but I think a woman should have the ability to birth however and wherever she pleases. I am lucky that I have found such a supportive homebirth MW who is in line with my own philosophies... I realize that for a lot of women, that unfortunately isn't an option.

    Yeah, My decision to UC was mainly due to the restrictions on HBMW theres only one in my area, I'm not a huge fan of her, but would be willing if it wasn't so much.. I just can't afford it and she HAS to be paid in advance. and thats if I "qualify" according to state regulations which can only be determined by OB at 37 week check up and theres only one OB who will back up the MW (give the OK so to say) and I HATE him so all in all it wasn't an option right now. BUT given the time i've had to prepare and my experience with DD birth I'm excited about UCing now. Though I rarely tell anyone about it..
