There are a number of excellent pregnancy and childbirth dvds commercially available. However, they can be tricky to find in stores. Most are available exclusively online.
Baker & Taylor The Miracle of Life DVD
The Miracle of Life DVD The conception and birth of a child is truly a miraculous process. Thanks to a dramatic breakthrough in science and cinematography, world-renowned photographer Lennart Nilsson takes us on a journey unlike any other. You'll witness, magnified up to half a million times the actual size, the egg being released from the ovary, the sperm fertilizing the egg, the development of a single cell into an embryo, and then a fetus, and finally the birth of a baby.
Gentle Birth Choices-Boxed Set Book and Video With Video
In Gentle Birth Choices, Barbara Harper, a mid-wife, nurse, and mother, outlines the elements of gentle birthing and provides a new model of maternity care that reduces the need for high-tech crisis intervention, and focuses instead on preparation and good health for mother and child. More than 50 black-and-white photographs by Suzanne Arms capture the joy and intensity of birth.
