Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
