This graphic birth video freaked me out....


Dont watch if your at all squeemish....

Sharing because although it freaked me out a bit it sort of made me feel a little bit more prepared - no idea why, think it was because its a real home made unassisted birth.. not sure how I feel about the NO midwife bit but I suppose we've been having babies long before we had midwives and those women managed... would scare the hell outta me though.



Some people might appreciate this video... others may not so youve been warned

oh, i sat and watched this before.
it is a lovely video and very natural but i just thought the whole time, just push and get it out, i know when i had my babies as soon as they crown and mw says i can push i did. no way did i want baby half in half out for that long

Wow....graphic! Thanks for posting. I agree that I also feel a little freaked out but it was good to watch as preparation.

I didn't think the baby would hang around so long after the head was born and after seeing it trying to breathe whilst the body was being birthed, i think I need to ask my midwife about how this would work in a water birth.

Thanks x

I think that is a lovely video. I think it is far less scary than some of the births you see on TV. She is working with her body rather than against it and baby came out gently in his own time. The way birth is designed to happen

I too was a little shocked by how long the baby was hanging around for but on the other hand its what our body is designed to do, labour and childbirth is such a natural thing and our bodies and the babies are designed to be able to cope with it (obviously problem free births)

I dont think baby struggles to breath as they are still attached to the umbilical cord so unless that fails very quickly baby will still get oxygen fine... it doesnt look very comfortable for the poor little bubba though but I doubt they are in pain... All questions to ask MW though as im not one

Glad it was of help to you.

I know which is why I was looking into birth videos as it is approaching very fast and im not feeling very prepared lol...

Its scary that we're now full term and baby could make an appearance any day now :s

Good luck xx

All 4 of mine have come out immediately with the next contraction once the head is fully out!
Even my last LO, where I addopted a 'no pushing' technique and just let my body do all the work, LO still came flying straight out with the next contraction! She was hanging around under water for a few minutes waiting for the contraction, but the amniotic sac didn't break til I lifted her from the water, so no breathing worries! lol But, with water birth.. they dont tend to breath until they're out of the water!

ETA.. just to relax you first time ladies a bit, if it was THAT bad.. i wouldn't be having my 5th I'm actually REALLY looking forward to labour, I cant wait to do it again!
