The Miracle of Childbirth

In the past week, three people have sent me the below video of a young girl watching not only the miracle of childbirth, but her own self being born. I was told to "have some tissues handy" and that it was "one of the most beautiful things" I'd ever watch.

See for yourself. (Or just watch the first few seconds for the gist.)

Maybe I'm just cold and cynical, but I didn't tear up a bit.

It's not that I don't think childbirth is beautiful, because other than the whole shitting on the delivery table and subsequent granny panties, I do. (Theoretically.) But had I been able to watch my own birth experience as a child, or even now, I'm quite sure it would bear no similarity to the clip above.

It would more likely look something like this…

Which I think is a far more appropriate response.
