Ottawa mom broadcasts home birth over the web

Thousands tune in from all over the world


An Ottawa mother had an audience of thousands as she gave birth to a baby boy Sunday night. Nancy Salgueiro had announced last month she planned to live-stream the birth of her son, and 2,500 people from all over the world tuned in to watch it happen. Salgueiro said the live-stream was intended to show “that birth is normal and not a crisis.” Salgueiro’s labour began at about 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon and ended with Oziah’s birth at 3:18 a.m. on Sunday morning.

  1. some things in life should be kept private !

    • Why….do you think giving birth is shameful?

      • It’s not shameful, it’s personal. There is a difference. But if people want to watch a stranger give birth, it’s not my place to criticize. 

        • Well thousands watched, so obviously it was educational….and it was after all, the woman’s choice.

          I doubt you’d have the same problem with say…heart surgery
