Ottawa woman gives birth live on the Internet

An Ottawa woman who announced last month she would broadcast the birth of her third child in her home live on the Internet for everyone to see, delivered.

Nancy Salgueiro gave birth to a boy at 3:18 a.m. Sunday, weighing six lbs 10 oz.

“We need to confirm how we are spelling his name before I post it, will let you know,” read a message from Salgueiro on her Facebook page.

Her page was filled with messages of congratulations, many of which came from people who watched the birth unfold online.

Salgueiro and her partner Mike Carreira’s first two kids, Leilani, 4, and Taivus, 2, were also born at home. Salgueiro said she wanted to share the delivery online in order to bring attention to natural childbirth.

According to ustream.tv there were more than 10,000 views of the labour.
