One Born Every Minute Twitter Party

True Confessions: Before becoming a parent, I watched far too many of those delivery day reality shows.  You know the ones.  The mom and dad to be joke lovingly as they casually walk into the hospital, the new mom holds a thoroughly wiped down baby in her arms, they head home seemingly refreshed and ready to start their lives together.

My deliveries were the exact opposite of everything I had ever seen on TV.

Delivery one occurred two months ahead of schedule and involved more specialists than I’d ever like to see assembled in one room ever again.  Delivery two ended with my son’s heart rate crashing, the nurse running down the hall pushing my bed (those things can MOVE!), and my amazing doctor performing an emergency c-section.

And let’s talk about my fabulous husband and mother, two of the people I love most in my life and the providers of support through the arrivals of both of my children.  My physician mother spent a good bit of time watching the contraction monitor to casually tell me when I was about to feel excruciating pain and my husband commented frequently on how uncomfortable delivery room chairs are. I’m fairly sure I didn’t get one single back rub…

Finally a show is arriving that delivers the real story of what happens in maternity wards across the country.

Lifetime‘s “One Born Every Minute” takes an in-depth look at life inside the maternity ward at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, as expectant mothers enter their final stage of pregnancy. From the delivery room, to the operating room, to the front desk, to the nurses’ station, 40 cameras roll 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to capture the high drama, humor and overwhelming emotion of childbirth as new lives begin and others change forever.  Please join us as we celebrate the birth of this new series with a Twitter Party!

    With each of my 3 children I have their births burned into my memory never to be forgotten. Each birth being more painful than the last. Oh and with my middle child, I remember screaming at the top of my lungs “Somebody help me please!” My husband still teases me about it to this day.

    • Brianne, were you at the same hospital as me when I was delivering my second child? Because there was some lady across the hall yelling that, and she scared me to death. ;0)

      • Brianne

        I hope not! I was so embarrassed after I gave birth. The hospital was full because of the date (08/08/08) and there were women in the halls waiting for rooms. I wanted to hide as they wheeled me from labor and delivery to a regular patient room!

        • Bless your heart! I was a mean ol’ you-know-what during my last one. We all embarrass ourselves. Goes with the territory. :0)

    Each of my kids’ births were so different. My first had to be coaxed out and after 8 hours she was crowning before the doctor got there – the nurse wasn’t even in the room. My 2nd was a fast 57 minutes of labor and I went home later that day. My third was about 3 hours and I remember it was like a circus…the doctor had his wife bring one of his twins’ bikes that they outgrew and gave it to my oldest (she was 4) and she was riding it around the delivery room.

  • See ya at the party!!

  • Amy

    Ha Amy…I didn’t get a back rub either.

    I love it. I hope there will be a couple of adoption stories in the show and on the twitter party too. I wasn’t at birth of either one of my daughters but live the stories and the show sounds good. Also I love resourcefulmom’s twitter parties.

    • My nephew and his g/f gave up their baby for adoption last year. My sister sat in on the delivery to help them out. It was a bitter sweet delivery with the baby being delivered to her adoptive parents after a period of saying hello and goodbye the next day. It was very heart wrenching for my sister who had an extremely difficult watching her grandbaby go. At the same time she was uplifted with joy for the new adoptive parents when the baby was passed to them.

  • I’ve been looking forward to this show! -I’ll be there! 🙂
