Childbirth videos can be both beautiful and educational – or just plain frightening. You can easily browse Youtube for childbirth videos and become sure that you will never ever give birth to a child!
Here I have collected a short series of birth videos that I think is both educational and hopefully fine to watch whether you’re pregnant or not.
They are showing a mom’s natural childbirth and include her reflections of the birth as well. I choose natural childbirth not because I have anything at all against pain relief, but because those women who have taken a decision to practice and execute natural pain-relief, tend to be more relaxed and more of an inspiration than the “lying-on-your-back-with-lots-of-medication” clips.
Still pregnant, you may also want to take a peek at these fetal development videos, to learn more about the little one inside of you.
Heads up! If you want to prepare your body or your hubby for the big childbirth day, check out these two great video classes on the topic:
- Yoga positions to strengthen and open up your body for childbirth
- Massage techniques and support tools for the birth partner
Natural Childbirth Videos
The first three videos are a sequence of the start of labor, the actual delivery, and after-talk from a mom going through natural childbirth.
This fourth video feels very genuine. The woman is in the hospital and on her back, but it is calm, emotional, and real. Worth watching.
I wish you the best pregnancy and birth of your child!
