advice to mom's about to give birth: if i could do it again, i would have gotten much more footage of things like: the monitoring machine, the room, the bed, walking the halls, entering the hospital, ricky, my doula betsy, the nurses, etc. i would have had ricky's sister come in every 2 hours or so (or 30 minutes if you don't plan on having a 2 day labor) and just film random things for about 5 minutes. ricky tried to film, but i really needed him fully there and didn't want him distracted. that's why an extra "just to film" person would have been nice and perhaps a list created beforehand of shots to capture. i did get the actual birth on video, but it's not of the "shareable" kind. ;)
