YouTube Baby Blow Up

A funny thing happened over Memorial Day weekend; the YouTube clip that accompanied our freebirthing story ("Baby's Day Out", May 10) experienced a minor explosion in popularity, garnering roughly ten times as many hits over the weekend as it had received in the weeks since it was posted. Jump on the bandwagon while the jumping’s good and watch as two preteens stare in mild shock at a video of a woman calmly and seemingly comfortably giving birth in the comfort of her own home, with only her husband/boyfriend present.

Warning: NSFW, as the birther is au naturel (i.e. naked) throughout.

Speaking of bandwagons, Westword is now represented on YouTube. Check out our channel for original video and clips featured in our blogs. -- Cory Casciato
