Over at Daddy Types, there is a great link to Rob Cockerham's documentary photography of their recent birth. No, it's not all blood and gore.. it's much better than that, it's largely wacky commentary on the scientific equipment.
It was funny recognizing so much of it all, especially the birthday hat (which we still have). I've always thought it interesting the conflict between how unique childbirth is to the participants, combined with how often (and similarly) it occurs. It's simultaneously a great big deal, and par for the course.
