Watching a labor and delivery video when you're pregnant, can let you know exactly what it is that you will go through at the end of your pregnancy. The videos below should be viewed with an open mind. When I was expecting my first child I watched as many birth video's as I could find! Let's face it, we've all heard the rumour that giving birth is painful. What you don't tend to hear so much is how beautiful the whole delivery process is.
When you watch a child birth video, it can leave you feeling scared, happy, upset, exhilarated and many more emotions as well. The main thing to remember is that when it is you, and you are giving birth, you will have a baby at the end.
A labor and delivery video can show you what will happen, but you will not experience the pure joy at the end, like you will with your own labor and delivery.
So here we go, I have chosen these videos to give you an insight into hospital births, home births, and water births. Please be aware that these videos are very graphic and do contain the vaginal birth of a baby, they are not suitable for children without parental guidance. Not all videos are English language.
This video shows a woman giving birth at home.
This video see's the mother having an episotomy, a cut to the opening of the vagina to allow the baby's head to pass. If this happens to you, the midwife or doctor will normally ask for your permission first. There is no sound to this video.
This next video is captured at a birthing centre, set to music. This is the mothers first natural birth after a cesarean. A very moving and beautiful labor and delivery video.
This is a natural hospital birth, with a very happy Mom at the end.
And finally a very beautiful water birth from Belgium. This video shows a very relaxed birth due to being surrounded by water. The water is said to ease a lot of the labor pain.
While it's easy to look at a child birth video and feel scared, especially if you're a first time Mom, remember while you are going through child birth yourself, it will be different to just watching a labor and delivery video. You will be working towards a goal.... the goal of holding your newborn baby in your arms for the very first time!
