New Spanish Commercial for Beds Features an Actual Birth

A beautiful new commercial was released today in Spain which features a home birth on the brand of mattress that it is advertising.

I will tease you with this screenshot of the video and send you over to BirthActivist.com to view it

Tweet, Stumble, Digg, etc., the Birth Activist post, please. Comment freely over there!

That was so beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. Way to go Spain! Could you imagine the uproar and chorus of "Ewws!" if a live birth was included in an advert in the US?!

I tried to post this comment on the Birth Activist site but it wouldn't let me, saying I had to be logged in (??)

Uh oh. I see that 'must be logged in' error. I'll tell Robin who runs the site. Thanks!

And yes, if that were shown here, the response would be, "Eww, boobiez! Vagina! Gross!" I thought it was so beautiful that it made me want another baby, but not a new mattress. I will be indulging in neither.

What an amazing commercial! My two kids were born in our bed at home. It was beautiful as well. Wonderful to see birth as the natural part of family life that it is. Wonderful to see it in the comfort of a couple's home, and see birth as normal and not a condition of crisis that necessitates a doctor's intervention.

Thanks so much for sharing this.
