It's a boy!

A baby was born live on the "Today" show this morning via C-section.

Dr. Nancy interviewed mom Kerry just moments after she delivered Baby Brody in Boston. Check out the video:

We're not so sure we'd want our C-section broadcast on national television -- but it's one hell of a birth video. Would you want YOUR birth televised live? Comment below.

This poor mother who got dooped into a c-section =(

I’ve just had my second c-section, and after 18 hours of labor with my first baby (and then having to have a c-section for failure to progress) I would rather have a c-section. The pain is nothing compared to labor, and it was great being able to plan the birth.

Just thinking about the fact that this is actually a question to be thought about makes me feel my age creep closer to 50…and I still have three more years!

Ugh…no. Go ahead…call me old fashioned, call me provincial, call me a prude…call me what you will. But, I am super comfortable saying NO.

Not only would I not want my own birth televised? I would not want the birth of my three children televised either, at all.

Birth and Death share a commonality and that is this: you enter the world pure and leave something divine behind, and in death you leave all that was and enter into something divine.

For me? I want that between what I left behind, me, my mother, and the people that supported her in the labor of birth. And in death, I would want that between those that helped me labor out of life, me, and whatever (hopefully divine) dimension I enter.

TV? Yeah…not so much!

Agree w/anonymous - My first delivery and labor were so awful that when I got pregnant with my second I DEMANDED a c-section upfront. I had an easier/quicker recovery and virtually no pain. I am opting for another c-section with this birth. Perhaps others have easier labors, but mine was so awful I still have nightmares about it.
