If so, did you video? If not, do you wish you could have?

Video cameras were not allowed during deliveries (neither c-section or vaginal) at my hospital. I wouldn't have wanted my vaginal deliveries filmed, but I do wish we would have for the c-section (only on my head side of the curtain. LOL The thing I wish I had with all my babies is the video of their first cries. It's a sound I never want to forget, but I know as each day passes it does get harder to remember it clearly.

Never got told not to. Didn't know I was having a baby when I went in (with the clothes on my back & NOTHING else). One poloroid from a kind nurse, then nothing for a couple more days. After that, I told a lot of people, "Don't worry about 'hospital bag'; the only thing indespensible is the camera."

2nd kid (VBAC) , I didn't want the nothing-to-the-imagination video. Some things are private. We got some movie clips (from the camera; not obviously video) after the baby was born.

Not allowed for the first birth; we didn't ask for the second. I'd give a lot of things to have had pics or video of me seeing F for the first time, since I don't remember it.
