LOL! I don't consider either of those two graphic at all. My sister freaked out about the pictures in Spiritual Midwifery (and didn't mention the two books you referred to, though she had them to read as well...but she may not have actually bothered with them). Think of thanking as text books. The pictures aren't there for you to oggle or squirm over nakedness. They are there to give you a visual of what things actually look like, so you don't just have thus cartoon idea of what things might look like. They are there to teach you. :-)

So I am guessing they are nakey and you see baby coming out. Lol. I remember warning dh everytime there was gonna be a naked lady on BOBB. I also borrowed a book on the Bradley Method and there are a lot of nakey pics. I am not sure I could be completely naked in front of so many people. I don't like being naked in front of dh most times :-/

Pregnant in America pretty much presents all the same information and there is little to no nudity. I like this one for men, as it is told from the perspective of an expectant father.

yes lots of naked hairy vaginas! Lol. I guess I'm just not crunchy enough to be comfortable seeing that without some warning. I mean I gave birth but I didn't watch.

I have heard of that. It's another documentary right? I will look into getting that one too.
