No, if that woman manhandled my baby like that, I'd probably end up getting arrested. I think its unnecessary roughness. Who picks up a baby by its arms like that also? I think the woman is a about a nut, and anyone who takes a baby to her is even worse.

 

I couldn't even watch the whole video.

No, I would not.

 

I remember taking swimming lessons when I was 5.  One thing I had to do to "pass" was jump off the (really) high dive, though.  This was in the mid-1960's.  That was scary.  My parents watched from the side.

I thought it was awful.IMHO it"s as if she does not care for children.If putting babies through that for making champion swimmers,it doesn"t seem worth it to me.

Now look at this. She is a  French Dr who has a water massage technique for bathing a new born

 

Look at the love ,and the skill she uses ,when bathing a baby, so gentle and soft  and quiet
