Birth Time Capsule

Let’s imagine that we could capture the essence of pregnancy and birth today in a time capsule to be opened in 2112.  Here is what I’d put in:

I’d hope that when the time capsule was opened, people would look at it and think that we were pioneers in helping reduce the cesarean rate and to lower maternal mortality by decreasing interventions when not needed.  I’d hope that they’d watch the TV births DVD and find it frightening, the way I feel watching the Navy Training Birth video.

What would you put in the time capsule?
