Cool! Thanks for posting this!

The last birth I was at, the baby was almost born in the caul. It was refreshing to see the midwife being so hands off.

Yep, the sack is there for a reason, and unless there's a better reason to rupture it, why not leave it alone?

That video was pretty amazing. Reminds me of the beauty of a natural, unassisted childbirth, like in nature.

Thank-you. I have always been pressured to break my waters. Last time I refused and it was like I was the crypt keeper with the attitude I received. I ended up giving in hours later to it but now, it's like, why is this necesairy?

I think it just kind of helps things move along a little.... and I'm sure at some point when the baby's head is out, the mom wants to get things moving. It also seems that it was kind of in the way there twords the end and the midwife broke it in order to have better access to the shoulders.

This is me being a little nit picky but the amniotic fluid is mostly baby pee by week 14, only a miniscule amount is from placenta beyond the 1st trimester. This is why a baby with no kidneys has zero fluid around it.
