Some say labor is a can't miss Kodak moment while others scream "Get that f!@#! camera out of my face!"
I am mixed.
So, I asked some moms (and dads) what they thought:
Amy Kelley, a mom of three who currently lives in the Netherlands has her first birth by C-section on videotape, but her second was not recorded.
"I have my first birth on video, though I am not sure that should have been allowed given liability issues for the hospital or doctor if something went wrong," Kelley said, making a pretty compelling point.
Still, she has shown the video to family and close friends and is overall glad to have it. "We don't have any video of [my second birth] and that is a shame. The memories are in my head and I don't think I will ever forget, but it's a shame we can't share the experience."
Meanwhile, Andy, a mom of one from Boston, Mass. is less thrilled with the idea.
