I've always wondered if those who want an audience to their birthing will get to the point where they want a cheering section for the conception, too. Might as well. Maybe sperm swim more aggressively with audience participation!

I had the pleasure today of watching video of a gorilla giving birth. Of course, afterwards she ate the afterbirth. I mean, to the point of enjoying it - sucking on the umbilical cord ... you know, I can't even type out the rest. But I almost died. I mean, I knew that many animals did this, but to see a genetic cousin doing that .... it just turned my stomach.

In an effort to understand WHY animals do this, I did a little search. Turns out there are painkillers in there, and that almost all animals do this to relieve the pain of birth and to gain vital nutrients.

Then they showed a tub of a human placenta.

If I wasn't 100% sure of being CF, I am after that. I do NOT want that thing inside me, much less coming out, much less the whole world knowing that it's there. EW EW EW EW EW.

Unfortunately I inadvertently found myself reading an article in a woman's magazine the other day about natural childbirth (without a midwife or hospital - complete DIY). I as reading out of curiosity. One woman had her baby at home with just her and her husband. OK, that's fine - each to their own - but then SHE told the reporter that she ate some of HER placenta. This was part of her ritual of giving birth.

I'm all for being connected with our natural state, but OMG...is this taking it a little too far?

This made me feel ill for hours after reading it. Sorry to have now planted this image in your minds...

I've actually heard of this being done...placenta stew being made and so forth. Supposedly, it's very nutrient-rich. But I personally wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

I forgot to mention the entire birth was filmed by a family friend.
I think it's totally inappropriate - and when do they plan on showing this film? and to whom?
