  • I usually like to share natural births/home birth becasue it gives the viewer a more realistic sense of what labor actually looks-sounds like.   (Regardless of how you might plan to deliver, natural or medicated)

  •  


    Having some exposure to childbirth ( real, not movies/TV ) can really help moms to understand what to expect. I love books, birth classes, doulas, support groups-- whatever helps moms to feel most confident and informed.


    There are natural births of twins, waterbirths, VBAC, educational videos...

  • I used a video called "Laugh and Learn About Childbirth" that was both funny and very informative. I was able to check it out of the library, and they stock it at Barnes and Noble. I found it to be very comprehensive, from early signs of labor (1-2 weeks before) to recovery from vaginal birth and C-sections. There was also a small section on cord blood banking.
