At my midwife appt yesterday I was presented with the opportunity to be a part of a documentary on waterbirth. It will be done by David Suzuki. For this reason, I am seriously considering it. I know it would be done in a light that is positive and educational.
The only thing is my hubby doesn't seem entirely comfortable with it. We haven't ruled it out yet, but he is really concerned with a few things. First, I have a birth team that is already on the bigger end. 10 people, incl. my DH, DD and I, if everyone makes it in time (homebirth). So, to add a camera crew onto that could make for some cramped quarters. Also, he's not sure how he feels about my goodies being on tv. Both reasonable concerns.
We did give them our contact info, so we'll have a talk with the producers to see exactly what it entails before we decide.
I really would love to do it. Cross your fingers we can work something out that makes everyone happy. (and if so, that I don't birth too fast! lol)
So, I just heard from the Association of Ontario Midwives. It is a radio documentary. So it would be sound recordings, not video. I haven't talked to DH about this update yet, but this would at least take care of one of his concerns. lol. It will be part of a series of radio shows that go into the human connection to the elements. The sounds of the birth would be the opening sounds to the 'water' episode.
A cool concept for sure, though not what I was expecting. But still, it would be neat to be a part of.
