If you click on the link and watch to accompanying video, it shows a baby being bathed in a hospital setting, right after birth. It is completely inhumane. The infant in brutalized without regard to its fears or pain. I used it in class yesterday to demonstrate two things.
One, how not to bathe a baby. The students were learning infant bathing techniques, and after showing the video I demonstrated a proper infant bath. The students had to return demonstrate later in the learning lab.
Two, how we do not as a matter of course treat infants as aware and sensitive beings. We treat them less than the rest of us, because they are small and lack language. I talked about how we 'casually abuse the neonate at every turn' and gave some examples. The bath video illustrated what I meant beautifully. I also took the opportunity to discuss birth from the neonates perspective and how we give no credence to the neonates experience of birth and difficult transition to extrauterine life.
I'm sure my students all thought that a lecture on caring for normal newborns would be "Cuddles and Hugs 101." Now they know different.
