It was very interesting although I don't see myself doing it!
Oh man this reminds me of a video I watched.. In our training we had watched this video on women from South America, how they would give birth totally alone, unassisted.. They would be working and just stop, squat and give birth then stand up and continue doing what they were doing before! It was insane, the women never looked scared, they were like super woman or something.. LOL
