Default Positive birthing videos

Hey,

I did HypnoBirthing which really helped us to have a beautiful home waterbirth. One of the most important lessons I learnt is that it really helps to feel relaxed about the birth, to look forward to it and to believe in the ability the body has to birth a baby naturally. One of the suggestions given to us by our HypnoBirthing instructor was to watch positive birthing videos. This was to help convert the fear surrounding childbirth into excitement. It was so useful and I felt it really worked. So I thought it would be nice to start a thread where people can share positive birthing videos. Here's a page I stumbled across today that has some great ones so it's a good place to start. 10 Positive and Inspiring Birthing Videos: Release the Fear!
Do you have any positive videos to share?
xx

I was super excited for a natural birth (hospital) for my 2nd child. I hired a doula and we did a birth plan, etc etc. But baby was transverse and she was my first C-section baby, lol! Initially I was really upset, but she's 4 now and I don't care much how she came out.

Hey Emily,

Wow! Sounds like that birth was quite a ride!

You are right, so long as a healthy baby comes out, it doesn't matter too much how it happens. That said, going in mentally prepared (eg through hypnobirthing) will help in every scenario. To be fair, this applies to anything in life really. lol.

I'm always amazed though at how many women go into birth expecting something terrible when it can be beautiful!

I honestly feel uncomfortable watching videos of women giving birth. Not that it isn't beautiful, I just feel like I am intruding into something personal.
