Oh "MISFITS" - you get the award for BEST TV CHILDBIRTH EVER.

I laughed so hard I literally peed.
(Seriously, if I hadn't had a blanket under me, our couch would be covered in pee.)

The actual birth is pretty good for tv - she's screaming, but they keep her in a squatting position.

But the best part is the boyfriend panicing when he sees the placenta.

Seriously, I'm still laughing. My lungs are all full of fluid from laughing and I think I pulled a muscle.

NOT SAFE FOR WORK (or anyone that isn't a birth junkie.)

this does remind me of a question I have been meaning to ask you -

What is the difference between a doula and a midwife?

A doula doesn't do anything medical.
The midwife's main focus is delivering the baby.
The doula's main focus is supporting the birthing mother.

Basically I'm the person that stays up by the momma's head when everyone else runs down to stare at her cootchie.

Well I object to the word "coach" in general, but yes.

Here be the blurb on my website:
