Did anyone else see the article in the August 17 That's Life magazine about the lady who gave birth via caesarean and pulled her baby out herself.
She's from queensland...it's got pictures and everything.
If you're interested i'll type it up and post it...just let me know...cause it's longish so i don't want to type it up if no one is interested

puts a whole new spin on feeling the babies head on the way out - although you do hear of home births (admittedly in the states) where they get the woman to reach down and grab the baby and pull it out......i'll have to get that's life now for a read
I thought that it was a wonderful and was really happy that the Doctor agreed to the procedure and that everything went well for her so she was in fact able to assist with the caesarean. I actually meant to come in here and mention it as well but i forgot!!!

no Kerensa she assisted in the delivery, the Obs pulled the baby half out until she was able to pull the baby out and "birth" him

I saw the woman interviewed on Sunrise a few months a go. It is a wonderful story and so great that there are doctors out there are allowing women to be so involved with caeser births!
