Having a baby is a major life event and sometimes it's nice to have something like that on film as long as everyone is okay with you filming it I see no problem with it, it will be something nice to show your kid one day either as to how he came into life.
The birth of a baby is one of the biggest milestones in a family's history. If the parents wish to film the birth of their children then they most certainly should record the event. This is a matter of personal preference; therefore, any debate is rather subjective. Of course, many years later, the child might not enjoy their folks sharing the moment during family gatherings.
I do not see any reason why parents should not be allowed to film the birth of their children. It is their child, and they also are making the video for themselves. It is an important day in people's lives and they should be allowed to make memories of it if they desire to.
Yes, parents should film the childbirth of their babies if they want to. If parents want to capture the moment their child is born I do not see anything wrong with it. Having a child is a very special moment and some people want to be able to relive it. Plus it would be cool for the kid to grow up and watch them being coming into this world.
There is no point of filming childbirth. The mother is in terrible pain, the father is panicked and the camera would always be in the way of the doctors trying to deliver the baby. The video will never be watched by family, friends or even the parents themselves. The best thing is to put the camera down and be in the moment. The person filming would be in the room, just pay attention and watch the child being born.
