Birth as Performance

Here's an article by Brooklyn-based performance artist Marni Kotak who had her son Ajax on October 17th, at a New York art gallery.  It is similar in concept to Dr. Nancy Salgueiro's home birth broadcast online on October 16th.   I attempted to watch Dr. Nancy's birth but fell asleep at 1 a.m. (her baby was born at 3:18 a.m.), and I have yet to re-watch the birth.  In my opinion, this is a wonderful trend in our Western culture where the sharing of birthing among young women has been lost.

You can watch Dr. Nancy's birth here.
