The Most Important Place In The World....Your Bed!

Thank you, GALIT!!! My friend, Galit, came over the other day and shared one of the most amazing things I had ever seen in regards to TV Commercials. I've been so blown away that I want to share it with you all.

Most of you know that I'm a Birth Junkie. I love educating and empowering women to make wise and informed choices as they bring life into this world and to find the strength that's deep inside...whatever and however they decide to do that.

There's a Spanish TV Commerical for a mattress. And I posted the link to watch it here.

Galit translated it for me, and I'll paraphrase it for you. This couple had a home birth when their first child was born. They are pregnant again and are trying to decide where to give birth. They have decided to give birth in their home again. They encourage people to give birth where they are most comfortable. They talk about how important it is to do that. For them, the most comfortable place is their home in their bed. "Your Bed. The Most Important Place In The World."

Wow!!! How amazing?!! What a brillant idea to sell a mattress?!!! I wish America would get on board and quit suppressing women's rights to give birth. All the scare tactics and for profit decisions boil me to no end. Hopefully, one of these days - America will wake up or at least the people will start fighting for their rights. Until then, enjoy the ideas of the progressive European countries.

Beware...this commercial will more than likely give you chills and bring you to tears. It's beautiful!!!!!!!
