Homebirthers - books, videos etc for children?

Anyone know of any good children's books, DVDs, youtube videos etc addressing homebirth and more natural pregnancy and childbirthing? I have found one on Amazon but it's like $60+?? can't seem to find it anywhere else either. DS is almost 4.5. TIA!

and what about for me? any good books besides Ina May?

For kids there is

"we're having a home birth" which is just written by a home birth mama and sold on her site.

Dr. Sears has a we're having a baby book and they go to a birth center and the baby breastfeeds.

Welcome with Love is another homebirth book, and then there is Momma Tell Me about When Max Was Born (or something along those lines, it's a waterbirth story). I would just type in birth videos on Youtube and pre-watch. My kids have seen tons, I don't really pre-watch though, just explain what is happening.

Welcome With Love is also titled Hello, Baby (by Jenni Overend, IIRC (?))--it's much cheaper as one or the other and is likely that $60 book you mentioned. We also have the Sears book mentioned above. Other than that, we watch hb videos on youtube. My 3.5 yo DS and I watched a couple today, actually

Re: Homebirthers - books, videos etc for children?

We have Hello, Baby and We're Having a Homebirth. Both are good. We have to go out of town this weekend but as soon as we get back I'm going to start showing them videos. I am undecided whether they'll be present for the birth but if it happens in the middle of the night, I want to be sure they'll be okay if they wake up in the middle of it.

welcome with love is a great book. penny simpkins 3 rs of childbirth is great video. it's not made for kids, but it's one of the few videos that don't cut away when the baby us born and it doesn't have any music. it's the actual sounds the moms make. I also did lots of role playing with my girls too. they would practice making labor sounds lol
