    Ah, Penn and Teller! They didn`t actually go through with this, by the way. The couple decided against it. But yes, hippies totally suck (I`m a liberal and an atheist--but this is as ridiculous as religion and all other forms of supernaturalism).

    I assumed it was going to be in a big tank, not in the ocean because, you know, sharks smell blood and come running (ok not running but you know what I mean).

    Does sound like a lovely idea, though I didn`t know dolphins had super powers that can correct problems which might occur in childbirth.

    I also keep thinking how the dirty salt water is going to make pregnancy a lot more painful for the mother, assuming she tears.

    Naw, babies are natural swimmers, and for a short while after birth they`re fine under water.

    And just when I thought that the craziest things these people have ever done was suggest to ben and jerrys to use human breast milk in their ice cream!

    You have to wonder how many pounds of pot they smoked to come up with this idea!

    If they actually went ahead with this, I doubt the dolphins would come even close to her while she`s in labor. If anything, her baby would drown, and she`d have no professional help if she got hurt.

    Leave it to the professionals, not the dolphins!

    Did he just escape from a mental institution? They`re freaking ANIMALS- once they smell the blood from the birth, they`d probably think the baby was an injured fish and EAT IT.

    This is for real.Penn and Teller did a segment on this for Bulls**t,and I felt compelled to research it after seeing it. I am a firm supporter for a mothers right for a natural, midwife assisited home,or birthing center birth, Water births actually help ease labor pains and quicken the birth process, as well as make babys transition into this world less traumatic because the baths warmth is similiar to the womb, but the OCEAN is not a safe place for a babys birth, unless you`re a sea creature, or a damn mermaid! All I can say is... it might be a beautiful concept in a perfect world where things would always be safe and things can never go wrong, but emergencies can and do happen in even the healthiest pregnancies.It`s best to be where help is nearby, and midwives are quite adept at handling many minor birth complications,keep mom and baby monitored (which you can`t do in the ocean!) and any midwife or doula worth her salt wouldn`t hesitate to call for help ASAP if needed.

    Oh and if you were to see the entire segment on Bulls**t you would discover that the woman pushing this onto the very young, brain fried couple never ACTUALLY even did this sort of birth before. They were to be her first victims. They ended up backing out and needless to say, child protective services began watching them. But I looked this lady up and she is just some New Agey flake who is starting her own business. I don`t even know if she has any midwife or OBGYN backround. Shes going to end up getting someones baby killed. I really hope someone stops this lunacy, and I`m glad Penn and Teller brought attention to this . It`s creepy.
