Very inspiring birthing sites for mommas who have their babies at home.

We have had five children 2 with midwives at home, 2 with midwife at hospital, and 1 unassisted (permission by my midwife from hospital) at home.... Our last birth was pretty amazing and very easy compared to my experience at the hospital. I was very tense with those two because of how fast my labors go. After much research and speaking with my midwife whom I trust so much we decided to see my midwife for all prenatals and have him at home. It was a fast delivery 2 hours long. Very easy. Pushed twice. He was 10 lbs 15 ounces and 20 inches long.

I have had net for this week so I have been watching a lot of birth videos and reading a lot and came across these two sites.... now some of the stuff I kinda chuckle at, but a lot of it is insightful and informative.

www.UnassistedChildbirth.com

and

www.birthasweknowit.com (video is neat)

and

www.birthintobeing.com

I have watched a few videos of births that were so awesome to see.

7th birth 4 unassisted

this one was accidental unassisted the dad had gone down stairs to meet the midwife


twins, i think this one was a VBAC unassisted


little boy born into very calm mother and fathers arms in the water

This one scared me.. he came out fine, but quit breathing and went limp.. i kept yelling at the screen for her to flip him over!! she finally listened

Anyway, I would love to hear inspiring birth stories or your take!!!

Great videos. I love the surprised unassisted one. I t made tears cvome to my eyes. She just seemed so shocked that she pushed the baby out and no one was there. My unassisted birth is in my siggy.

I like this one as well, I really love how no one has a hurnia when the baby doesnt scream right away... it really shows how patience pays off

Mind if I add another? This thread got me watching births for the last half hour! I think it's just really beautiful how calm one can be.

I love this website with 230+ positive birth stories! Many are hypnosis/Hypnobabies stories but they're all so inspiring to read. They're not all home births, though.

Re: Very inspiring birthing sites for mommas who have their babies at home.

I wish i could some how put my UC video online, but it's on a regular video tape. Maybe I could video tape it with my digital camera and then download it? I don't know how good of quality it'd be though. Any ideas?

I've always loved watching birth. A video that helped prepare me for my UC was watching this Orangutan giving birth all by herself. She just seemed to know what to do. You can see the pain on her face as she concentrates through the pain. I am a Christian and do not believe we came from moneys, but I do believe birth is a natural process among all animals. I mean animals all over the world give birth alone. There are no Dr. gathering around in the jungle to moniter and tell the lioness, ape, giraffe, mouse, etc... to push. Just them ,their bodies, and nature.
I just love how she unwraps the cord from around him and suctions his face and massages his body with her mouth to encourage him to breath. Instinct: that is the way I understand birth.
