  • Yes, it had me paranoid. When I had my 1st baby, I was like ok, that didn't hurt at all and no drugs. I thought it was going to be the worst pain imaginable. I also thought it would last for hours and hours, nope just an hour. I was up walking around 20 mins after she was born.

  • yes it is very misleading.

  • Yes, it's so unrealistic. No monitors, or tubes, or anything. Contractions are like "ooh that hurt" and that's it. Two pushes and the baby comes out. HA! Yeah right! Where's the blood? the sweat? the cursing?

  • kind of like on soap opera's how the sex is always good, hahaha

  • Yeah they always dramatize it and perpetuate myths. Like a few weeks ago on LOST when the woman had one contraction and all of a sudden the baby was coming! Then the baby was breech so she "had to have a c/section!" Uhh read some research studies before using your media power to perpetuate lies.
