Birthing Videos to Watch?

Postby Robbie88 » Thu Jul 04, 2013 8:45 am

Hi Ladies!

My husband and I are expecting our first in September and we are trying to get as prepared as possible.. thinking about going to the local library or the store to rent some DVDs on birth!

I want a natural birth (as much as possible..) I will be in a hospital, no water birth, my mother and my MIL might be in and aout of the room during labour but only my husband will be with me at the very end..

I just don't know where to start! Anything with relaxation techniques, videos of births, or other helpful information..

Suggestions super welcome :)

Definitely watch the Business of Being Born if you haven't already. That's the only one I really know about.

I second the business of being born :) I recommend reading a lot of positive birth stories too! Check out birthing without fear (blog and Facebook page)--they have awesome birth stories, natural, medicated, c-sections..all kinds!

You can find a bunch on YouTube, but they run the gambit of birth experiences. This one is my favorite because the mom is just adorable!

I like the affirmations/quotes included through this one too.

Warning, this one has mama nude, and she swears, but you can see baby come out without having an extreme close up on her perineum.

Also, I had to chuckle when she wanted a C section (really, exchange a few minutes and hours of pain with vaginal for weeks of it with major surgery). :wink:

Hrm, thought I was editing my post not quoting myself! Must be time for bed!
