Nate and I randomly caught the tail end of In the Womb
this morning. As I suspected from the title, the show featured lots of cool images of a baby in a womb. I should have deduced, however, that the baby would exit said womb before the credits rolled. Next thing I know, all of a sudden, we’re in the harsh light of the hospital and a little head is popping out.
“Where are her legs?,” Nate says. (The mom, not the baby)
We both stared in silence, trying to figure out the insane acrobatics this woman was displaying when we realized she was standing up;
the camera was behind her. The little one slides out, the doc cups it like a slimy football and essentially reverse hikes it through the mom’s legs and hands it to her.
Crazy! But rather awesome.
