40. Have you ever seen a person (or a dog or a cow) give birth?

No - I think I would prefer to keep my lunch down, thank you (though I was present at the births of my two sons - as a mother, you kinda have to be).

All of my daughters , dogs, cats plus horses, rabbits and many goats. I'm a farmer after all :D

I am from a rural area, but have not seen a live birth. I think I would panic if I wasn't the one giving birth. I am not in the least bit squeamish usually, but I think I might be, if the thought of live birth worries me.

I learned a great deal during the years I had dairy goats, how to reach inside a laboring doe and turn a breech kid, how to pull that kid out of bits mother and to get it breathing quickly. That was easier than watching my girls in labor, but seeing my grandchildren come onto the world was a holy rxpetience.


Being raised on a farm, I've seen just about everything give birth. It gets a little old after a while.

I can imagine that it does.
