<3 "vagina/butt-hole"

(this has to be the classiest comment ever, right?)

"shove the baby under the heat lamp like a pork loin at a hotel buffet."

Call this guy Dr. That is correct!

...at least he's completely honest? :)

Well, I wanted to laugh. Can't say as I did.

So infuriating. Really? That's weird. I had a natural birth and didn't need an episiotomy. Guess I'm a whore? Awesome. The sad thing is that there are going to be women out there who watch that clip and it's going to convince them to have a c-section. Look at the comments. There's already a girl saying she's going to have a c-section based on this totally false portrayal of natural birth. I can't even get into all that's wrong with this video because it's late, and I refuse to work myself up over this video. Just sad. Sad. Sad.

I have heard the two hundred years ago.... line from JUST about every doc I have ever met. I must get that textbook they're all quoting from.

I was also listening along and nodding "Yup, mm-hmm, yup, sounds like all taken directly from 'My OB said WHAT', accurate portrayal of a certain kind of OB (and the occasional midwife)". But Jacque, reading what you said about the comments made me realize that women are going to think this is an accurate portrayal of all births. So I can laugh seeing this through my own eyes, but not really seeing it through other people's.

I wasn't a fan of the whore/huge vagina comment, FYI. This guy's comedic timing is spot-on (go look up his job interview episode) and this is great satire, spoofing both doctors and their schedules and patients who insist on "natural" anything in a hospital. And yes, Ms. Biscuits, the crudeness almost kept me from posting but then I thought, well, it's never stopped me before, so...

I guess I'm just over satirizing natural birth. Couples who want natural births are easy targets, and I think it deters a lot of people who are considering it, but don't want to deal with being labeled/made fun of/or part of a minority. This satire just hits a sore spot with me.

Jacque, I disagree that satire in this area is a significant deterrent. Not to sound glib, but if a satirical two minute video is really going to deter a couple from pursuing an unmedicated birth, how big of a priority was it for them?

It probably just depends on one's sense of humor. My preference is an unmedicated birth in a quiet place without a ton of interruptions and yet I think this is a riot, mostly because it's so over-the-top and exaggerated. I hear what you're saying that it's hitting a nerve with you, though, and totally respect that this doesn't feel like something to joke around about.
