Forget about color. Shoot the birth in black and white. Just thinking about
all the color going on during that experience makes me dizzy.

But if you really have to shoot color, and chrome, go with 30 magenta. With
print film skip the filters and try the Kodak portra NC 800.

Bring a 35 if you have one. Enjoy (Did I hear your wife say in the
background "yeah right"?)
