Canadian mother plans to live stream birth of her third child

Ottawa - A Canadian mother and professional birth coach has announced she is planning to live stream the birth of her third child on the Internet, in an effort to empower women and promote natural home childbirth.
Nancy Salgueiro, a 32-year-old mother of two, says "women and young girls used to be exposed to birth throughout their lives." This changed, she said, "when we took birth out of homes and moved it into the hospital we took away the generations of information handed down from one woman to the next."
Salgueiro is on a mission to remove the secrecy and mystery from childbirth and she will do so by broadcasting her third experience with motherhood online.
"I feel it's really important for people to see the difference because birth is not what you see on TV. It can be, but it doesn't have to be like that," she said.
The mother of two, who is a chiropractor, childbirth educator and natural health expert, has established a website,, where visitors can pre-register for access to the live-stream birth. CBC News reports over 800 people have already signed up for the big event.
Updates on her website give women an idea of what to expect during pregnancy. She hopes this will counter women's fears of childbirth.
