This is pretty cool...Ricki Lake is going to have a new talk show again! I'm super psyched because over the past few years I have become a HUGE Ricki Lake Fan! It all started with her amazing documentary called, "The Business Of Being Born" that completely changed the way I look at childbirth. Then when I was pregnant with baby #2 I read her book, "Your Best Birth" and it helped to confirm my choices to have a more natural birth.
Since she is starting her new talk show again she is asking to hear from mom's who have changed the way they birthed their baby due to the documentary to possibly be on an upcoming show.
*raises hand* "Me! Me! Meeeee! Oooo Oooo Pick Me!"
(That is a little shout out to all of my teacher friends who are heading back to work soon after a nice, relaxing summer off. Did you miss hearing that all summer? )
So I sent the producers this blog post talking about my water birth experience and what my decisions were for deciding on a water birth at home with a midwife and a doula and they liked it. So now I have to make and upload a video of myself to Friends of Ricki to *possibly* be on the show.
I guess this means I need to take a shower, wear something cute and put on make-up to look somewhat presentable for the video. Eh. Honestly though, I don't know when I'm going to be able to do this thing. I think I'm going to have to make it at midnight or something because every time I start to do it (or let's be honest, every time I start to THINK about starting to do it) the kids are totally up my grill. You know how you become the most interesting person on the face of the earth (to your children) the minute you pick up the phone to make a call? Yea, try making a damn video blog! Impossible!
To the Ricki Lake Show Producers, "I'll make one, I promise!!"
