Baby's First Video

Shrieking.
Grunting.
Giving birth.
 
So graphic,
    you want to turn away.
So vivid,
    it triggers memories.

In the age of social media,
birth videos
are the final frontier.

Filming births--
recreating the ancient birth hut,
capturing it artistically.

If it hasn’t been captured on video, if it’s not on YouTube and Facebook, did it really happen?
