My favorite commercial

This is amazing. I had hospital births, but have many friends who have had homebirths, and I am open to the idea for future births (not so sure that Carlos is). Regardless of your stance, this commercial is beautiful.

For those who don't speak Spanish, it is a commercial for a bed/mattress company, with the slogan that your bed is the most important place in your world. It features the couple talking about how their son was born at home, and how important it was to them for their daughter to be born there, in the same bed. The mother speaks of the miracle of bringing a new life into the world, and how special to be able to give birth in your own place, the way you wish.

LOVE it!!!!

You would do fabulous at home! :) We also have a pretty new birth center. ;) I can see how he would be a bit nervous. But what happened with Elena is VERY rare!!!

Thanks! You know that wherever we give birth we would want you there. :) And honestly, while you know I like Dr. B, I don't think that the outcome for Elena would have been different at home or at a birth center. It would have been different with an OB who was more into interventions, of course.
