THE REAL STORY.

BirthTUBE started in August 2017 by this random girl who knew nothin' about birth, Paige LoPinto. (hey, that's me. :))
It's true. I was a wedding planner/nanny/ full-time mom and 8 months pregnant with my 2nd when I thought,  "hey, I should stream my birth live on Facebook." (sounds crazy, I know!)
Here's the back story, I knew I wanted to have a home birth with my 1st but wasn't exactly sure where to start with this 'home-birth-thing.'
Growing up I knew - you get pregnant, hire an OB, go to the hospital with 'it's time', scream your head off until you get the epidural and BOOM you have a baby.
But I always knew I wanted to do 'it' different.
At 10 yrs old, I remember looking at my best friend's ginormous bathtub and saying, "I would love to have a baby in there."
Fast forward to planning the birth of my first child...
I wanted to see what a home birth looked like, sounded like, and the get answers to some of the most 'basic questions,'
- how do they fill the pool, what happens if there's a mess, etc.
I needed to see a home-birth to get some answers and gain some confidence!
Hello YouTube videos!
YouTube birth videos really helped me have an amazing home birth Dec. 4, 2015.
So I thought what better way to pay-it-forward then to stream my birth live on Facebook!

p.s. I totally stole the idea from watching April the Giraffe give birth live... (if you don't know, a zoo in NY streamed the birth of one of their giraffes live for the world to watch.)

DON'T LET THE  GIRL WITH THE LAPTOP FOOL YOU.

WHY DID I GET INTO THE BIRTH WORLD?
I used to be a nanny, wedding planner, tour manager, cocktail waitress, real estate agent… My passion has always involved something with business and being creative.
I saw an opportunity to COMBINE social media with birth to show people what (my) home birth looked like...  So I did, I streamed my birth live...
"But you aren't the birth expert...."
You probably know more about birth than I do... But that's what makes our community so great! We're simply a bunch of people who are exploring our options, sharing our stories and figuring this out together.

- But don't you worry, we have amazing birth experts in our community to answer all of our birth-y questions!
