This sounds very like the monologue from 'Be Safe' by The Cribs. Is there a name for this style? It's beautiful

This has me crying at 5:21am remembering the births of my boys who are now 20 and 27, but in my heart will always still be my babies. I still look at them and think wow I created these two beautiful human beings. Love that sometimes seems to falter in a 30 year relationship created these beautiful boys that can break my heart and mend my heart all within a seconds time. Thank you Russell for taking me there this morning, where I needed to go. Sending love and prayers to you and your family. Remember your mother is a fighter, it is how you became one and she will fight to stay here at all costs to see her beautiful son be a beautiful father for many years to come. Love and light 💜

yes, birthing is an intensely emotional experience...well said Russell!

What a beautiful and endearing moment to share with Us, Russell. Your eloquently expedited words magically pull Us into your experience, I am able to feel the love for your daughter, the awe and pride you feel for her Mother, and the immense joy and sense of purpose you were awakened to. Thank you.

Russell - you got it 100% right. Life begins at BIRTH, when water filled lungs gasp and expunge the amniotic air and lungs taste the first sweet gulp of earth's rich gaseous shroud. Anyone who thinks like begins when sperm hits ova has never had the powers to observe birth, as you so eloquently have.

why even go there?? what you say; only matters, if you need to pollute the moment with a political posture..... not now, not now, bud.

arent you glad you get to be poetic about it while not suffering one bit, while she suffers in an non romantasized way cause the pain for her was real to you it was fleeting and a gain, tell the story for her in a platform where only you will be the one heard and a video that will remain for ages circulating on the internet and your daughter will see it thru your eyes, eyes that retell a story of a womans journey. one more voice overpositioned over the womens voice.

I am sick to death of people thinking and telling the world their lives were only worth living after they had a child. I went through IVF and it failed. I have loved my stepdaughter since she was three when I met her, but when I tell people about her they just look at me with pity. Life is not just about being a parent. The world is horribly over-populated. Three children in Africa die every minute from malnutrition. Yet we must laugh at Russell's amazingly funny crap about him becoming a father. Good on you Russell for joining the acceptables

A rich recount of the most magnificent moment of your life. I am not a bio parent but consider myself one, as his father is unavailable. My nephew was born at 29 weeks, and I was first to see him. He was two pounds, and he was beautiful, alert, and touching the incubator making eye contact. That was the most miraculous event of my life, and these moments have multiplied as he has gotten older. What a wonderful story to read and hear...thank you for including this in your book.

Hey Russell, I was wondering if you had the opportunity to see this. This would be really appalling to you but this is the case indeed. A 12-13 year old kid from India. https://youtu.be/fZOsmbm6YdI I wish I could do something about it.

Such a beautiful and perfect description. I completely understand the sentiment of always having that love inside of you and it being manifested within the child. It's like your heart is finally here and on earth. I was searching for her all my life without even knowing it.

I just wish you'd accomplish something 😓

Your daughter? are you assigning gender without consent Russel? you know genders are a made up socai construct, you musn't say son or duaghter anymore, it's 'child'. childbirth and pregnancy are social consturcts.

Great video Rus! Started reading my copy yesterday and I have to say that I'm liking it so far. Glad to be reading on of your books again. I'm not a heavy addict but there are some annoying behavior patterns that I find myself in. Hope I can let the book help me

Hang on a sec, I'm reading his new Recovery book right now, and I'm presuming this is an excerpt from that book, right? So, does that mean it strays into memoir-esque territory?

Reminds me of a Private Eye front page. .... "Woman has baby" reference to the birth of a royal sprog !! http://media-assets-05.thedrum.com/cache/images/thedrum-prod/public-drum_basic_article-114516-main_images-PrivateEyeWomanHasBaby--default--385.jpg

Thank you Russell. We need more children on the Planet like we need fucking herpes on all parts of our body. No fucking care factor here. Maybe look up Bobby Calves. Look at the fucking humans do to just born animals. You really are so lame. I am disappointed in you. No one cares about fucking Laura. Another fucking breeder. And you? Another fucking fucker. Oh please. Beans up her muff. Simple really. B.O.R.I.N.G.

kimberley Howes (1 year ago)
This is perfection given a voice. How touching to hear a father for once give their beautiful side of this often one sided story. I have had two children, both by emergency section, so I've never had the 'labour' of helping my children into the world. But this is so heart felt and beautiful. What an incredible father your daughter has. Xxx

Russell that was simply beautiful... i just got my copy of Recovery in the mail today and am really hoping it can help me. I’m really struggling.. i’ve beat an opioid addiction, but my life is still derailed. thanks for your beautiful words.
Wendy Knox-Leet (1 year ago)
Keep on dear one, the struggle is the process! Clean and sober more than 37 years and my derailed life has been one amazing journey that has shown me wondrous and profound things. Some hard, some easier, all unexpected. Open the window wide on your journey, breathe, laugh
Drunk Vegan Gal (1 year ago)
Good luck, Amanda...you can do it...reach out to others and, most importantly, keep trying (however long it takes). You can do it and it will feel amazing!

Brand's book gets high marks from me. He seems to genuinely care about the addiction apparatus that we all maneuver through in life. His affection for all people, no least of which his daughter, comes through clear. This is wonderful.

abstractswirls (1 year ago)
Wow stunning. These deceptive words of emotion is incredible. Expressing the moment of Spirit entering the flesh of this realm. That spark that ignites a Love so grand in all who witness it. May everyone feel this type of Oneness in their life. Even if not by birth of a child but in others ways as well

Reproduction has instrumental value, but an essential and necessary step to bettering the world, and making it a less painful place, is if we truly aknowledge and commend the values of anti-natalism/rejectionism. This is hard, as it is in conflict with our deep biological drives of self-preservation and self-expansion, but it's the moral thing to do. https://aeon.co/essays/having-children-is-not-life-affirming-its-immoral
