  • I taped my first child's birth. I never heard of a hospital not letting you record your own delivery.

  • If your delivering in the hospital,most don't allow you to video record the births because of liability issues.

  • I didn't, we took tons of pics but I wasn't really comfortable with an actual taping of the birth. But my cousins taped the whole thing, I mean all of So it probably just depends on the hospital that you deliver at ask your doctor. Oh and Kimberly in Berea are you from Berea KY? Just wondering because I used to live there and my name is Kimberly too.

  • We video taped ours. And my mom took pictures for my first son, she wasn't there for the second. But it's typically not allowed as the first girl said. But my doctor was awesome. It's not like you are going to post that stuff on the internet for someone to see, well, hopefully not. But it will be interesting to look at many many years later. Just my hubby and I.

  • My husband was in film school when we had our last baby so I thought it would be a great idea for him or one of his classmates to do it, but like others have said, it's was not allowed at our hospital.

  • I wasn't able to tape my births - Jenna was an emergency c-section and Brianna was a planned c-section. I didn't think to ask but I doubt they'd allow a camera in the OR. I got plenty of pictures after I went back to my room though. Neither of my babies did much after they born - Jenna looked around a lot but Brianna just slept, she didn't open her eyes until she was 3 days old. She squirmed around and made noises and was awake but didn't open her eyes.
