Inspiring, moving and powerful - a must see!
on 24 January 2004
I had planned on having a home waterbirth with my first child, and had done a lot of research on gentle birth choices, birth plans, midwives, etc.
I ended up giving birth in a hospital, but at least it was the natural, drug-free birth I had hoped for. I got this video in preperation for the birth of my secong child and I am absolutely delighted with it. My husband and son (now 16 months old) both watched it with me from beginning to finish. My son got so excited when he saw the babies being born, he was dancing through the room, clapping his hands and giggling away! My husband and I both teared up several times, the births filmed are so direct, honest, touching and beautiful.
Contains footage of home births, water births, family births, birthing center births, a hospital birth, a VBAC home birth, as well as very informative interviews with MDs, nurses, midwives, birthing partners, lay practicioners and mothers.
A must see for all every expectant parents, and a great way to prepare children for the birth of their new sibling.
