A Mattress Ad & The Home Birth Project

This is a husband and wife team talking of their experiences with midwifery care and home birth. She tells her birth stories and experiences with midwives. Her sons play and come in and out of her telling, making for a natural, intimate setting, much like home birth.

If you can believe it, the following video aired on Spanish television. It shows a home birth on a Flex mattress. It is a commercial for Flex mattresses! I love how beautiful yet commonplace they make the birth of a child seem. Amazing. For those of you more sensitive viewers, it is a birth, portrayed tastefully enough to show on Spanish television, but a birth none the less...Worth a watch!
