These videos of vaginal birth are both graphic in nature but simultaneously capture the essence of a comfortable natural childbirth.
NOTE: These videos do not have sound. You don't have to wonder why your speakers aren't working.
As with all online videos, they take a minute to load. For best viewing, click "play" on your selection, then pause. You will see a red bar stretch across the bottom of the video as it loads. Once the bar is complete, once again click "play" to view the complete video.
The first selection is quite unique as it depicts a hospital waterbirth in a clear tub. The birth is just so peaceful - it's far, far removed from the visual childbirth images that so many women picture. It's truly an inspiring experience.
The next video depicts a natural hospital birth. The birth of the baby is clearly visible. It gives a first-hand look at how the perineum slowly stretches to accommodate the baby's head as it crowns and highlights the value of performing perineal massage throughout your pregnancy to allow the tissues maximal elasticity to prevent tearing, burning or the "ring of fire" as the baby crowns.
Please browse through the rest of the galleries. There
many inspiring natural childbirth videos, including waterbirths, homebirths, and hospital births.

Vanessa's natural birth story shows that when birth is left alone to proceed as it should, it waits for no one - not even doctors or midwives.
