Beautiful home birth video sells mattresses?

Via AFY_Mer at amplify, a beautiful video about a family’s home birth, complete with crowning shot. The catch? It’s a mattress commercial.

It’s a little hard to believe that home birth could be a selling point for mattresses, but who knows. I guess if I was going to give birth at home, in my bed, I would want a comfortable mattress. Either way I’m psyched to see this kind of imagery out there, and on the corporate dollar!

For those who don’t speak spanish, the tagline at the end reads: “Tu cama. El lugar mas importante del mundo.” which means “Your bed. The most important place in the world.”

Thanks to Kathy for the link

    It is a really beautiful. But, yeah, disconcerting that it’s an ad for matresses.

    Amazing video! I wish I lived in a place where birth was seen as a family experience in a familiar environment and not some sterile location with sterile medical staff.

    and the most amazing thing is that in Spain most of woman give birth in hospitals… maybe things can change after all…
