one born every minute.


John & I absolutely love this show. There is something terribly icky about it, but at the same time so lovely to watch. Kind of like a horror film. You really don't want to watch, so you close your eyes, but use your hand too. Then suddenly your fingers start to split and you're kind of watching. Ha! Oh you know what I mean!

Anyway, the women that go into these hospitals are freakin' WARRIORS! I'm not even exaggerating either.

Flippin' warriors.

Athena would be proud.

Sometimes these women will come in and just use the nitrous oxide. I know it as "laughing gas".  My mother-in-law once told me her friend just took an ibuprofen. What?! Look, I don't know a thing about having babies, but I didn't realize it was possible! From the shows I've seen about the subject in the US, and from what my friends tell me, is that you can get an "epidural" and feel virtually nothing. But watching the show, it seems like you're encouraged to give birth naturally. [Cue warrior princess music or something like that.] Woooooah. Woah.

And is it me or are midwives like the fairy godmothers of delivering babies? Seriously. They always look so happy.

I've just been meaning to share my thoughts on this program. One of my closest friends is going to have a baby and I'm so excited to meet the little jelly bean! And I mean, these women, and their partners (both men & women) are magnificent. They're warriors!



PS. You can catch the next episode on Channel 4, Monday's at 9pm. OR if you're in the US, on Lifetime!
