Expanding Birth Options: Outdoor-home-birth can be safe

The show does have scary music in the background and is made for adult viewers because it does show a birth toward the end of the episode. I agree with the review that the couples do not appreciate the view depicted of their families and birth selection. The births were not nearly as dramatic as it is shown. However, it does show that woman can have as many birth options as they wish. And I hope that this show allows women more options in the future.
