a commercial for home birth??

no, in fact, it's actually a commercial for mattresses! a commercial that happens to use real, actual footage of a family's home birth to depict how wonderful their mattresses are!

made in spain, the commercial is from a region and a culture where home birth is not seen in anywhere near the same light as here in the u.s. many parts of europe boast high rates of midwife-attended home birth that put the u.s. to shame.
really, i'm jealous. i wish the commercials that interrupted my weekly dose of grey's anatomy (yes, i admit it. i'm a junkie.) were this beautiful and serene. and i wish my culture accepted home birth enough to use it to sell mattresses.
