Giving birth is apparently shocking

Apparently (judging by the extremely statistically reliable sample set that is our prenatal class) most couples have no idea what is actually involved in having a baby.  Today we watched a series of videos which followed couples through labour and delivery.  While generally not trying to be indecent these videos did provide reasonably graphic views of the actual delivery (although nothing more than you get on TLC).  Many of the people in the class seemed to be genuinely shocked by these scenes.  Where have these people been?  Is our education system so non-offensive now that people don't even know how babies are born?  Yikes!

The doctor brings the baby in his little black bag, doesn't he?

I know I'm a little late commenting on this...but I was in Grade 8 Health class with your husband, and let me say, unless TLC has become a lot more graphic since I gave up cable, he's seen worse. Placenta. Everywhere. I still have flashbacks...
