I missed it - and have been driving past a huge billboard advertising it every day as it is near my son's school! Will do the catch up - thanks.

It was brilliant. Ralph had me in tears he was so lovely. I felt so sorry for him when she wanted her mum in the theatre and not him :(

I cant remember her name but the girl who screamed was exactly like me! When she said at the end, i dont care what people think, screaming helped me, i know exactly what she meant, screaming for me was the only way to deal with the pain. I dont understand why that midwife said "why is she so distressed" because shes in alot of bloody pain and petrified i should imagine!!!!!!

Everyone deals with pain in different ways!!!!!!!!

Brilliant programme

Slightly off tangent here but in hospital last week after having George, we were waiting to see the Dr before coming home and listening to another woman giving birth, no word of a lie her scream was the most primal thing I've ever heard, she sounded like she was being brutally killed. DH was fretting thinking her labour must be going wrong for her to make so much noise but as Miss P says, if it helps you get through it why the feck not scream? Apparently I moaned, like a blue whale. I'm not even sorry, though I'm ashamed I didn't swear this time at all.

I hate hate HATE watching it. They purposely pick 'interesting' people instead of marvellously 'boring' people who are on their third kid, come in, labour for an hour, get 'em out with no fuss, and go home six hours later. That is, MOST LOVELY WOMEN. As well as that, half of the midwives make me want to screech.

For example, for dramatic purposes last year, the woman who was going to caesarian to have the baby with gastroschisis (stomach outside) would have known that that was what she was having because it would have been diagnosed on USS and was probably the reason she was having a CS in the first place, but they edited it to make it look like it was a total surprise.

As for screaming, it's your labour, scream all you want. If you want to hold it in and use the pain to push, then by all means, go for it. If you want to let loose a gutteral roar, then do your thing. Vocalising in the middle of pushing CAN make it a little less efficient according to old school midwives, but psssht.

I yelled like a fire engine when my epidural ran our before I got run down to theatre with Alicia. And proud of it!

Aw, I like it. Of course they pick the 'interesting' cases, but even that, I do like it.

I had no idea what this was until I clicked on it - and now I know I shall never watch it.

Childbirth as entertainment?
