I could tell the conversation had gone from childbirth, hospitals and home births to buckets, but not why, and what all the hand gestures were for. It turns out that for home birth in the Netherlands, you're supposed to have two buckets. But since no-one really knows what for, speculation included making it easier to whirl the baby round like a new born lamb, dousing the baby with water like a new born calf, or for head protection for the farmer when his wife finds him treating the new born baby like a farm animal.
