Yesterday, I got 1015 hits, most of them to do with “Kathy’s Birth” in various search terms. A big thanks to Jill at The Unnecessarean for getting to the bottom of the mystery.
First, if you’ve come here looking for the funny clip, here it is.
However, if you’re looking for the supposed 70s clip of the woman named Kathy actually giving birth… you’re outta luck. That was just a fictitious bit of tape made for the “Worst Week” show. If however, you’d like to watch actual birth videos, I’ve got a lot of them right here.
Since I’m Kathy… If you are interested in my birth stories, here is my first birth and here is my second birth. If you want to read other birth stories, you can choose that category from the drop-down box in the left hand column.
Onto the subject of men attending birth and/or being squeamish about seeing their wives or other women give birth, since that was the thrust of the funny “Kathy’s Birth” clip you’re looking for. Ladies, let’s let men be men, and if they don’t want to see you or anyone else give birth, respect that. Some men can actually be turned off by seeing their wives give birth, and have trouble reconciling the sexual and birth-giving aspects of your genitalia after seeing birth. If you push it, you may be disappointed by the repercussions. Just something for you to ponder.
Some men just don’t want to see other women give birth. Respect his limitations, and get a female friend (mother, sister, friend) to go to birth classes with you and attend you in birth. We see throughout history that most birthing women were attended by only females, so the current trend of requiring fathers to be at the birth of their children (which is fine if the men want to be there) is an oddity. Just some food for thought.
