Yes. I've also seen a TV special on it some years ago. However,
the time I saw that special I happened to be dating a nurse. I asked
her about it and was told that the footage for those films is rather,
well, "hand picked." The "accident" rate for this form of birth is, I
was told, rather high.

Also a baby holding its breath before breathing is induced is
hardly surprising. Likewise, a baby kicking its legs and waving its
arms (which Karen didn't mention) is something baby's do in general.
Hardly evidence of anything.
