Birth Video

This is a great (short) birth video that I found on youtube of a standing birth at a free-standing birthcenter (how you like them apples?!)



Beautiful demonstration of mama pushing in a standing position (a position you don't see much anymore), with a sibling present, with two women in attendance.

This was wonderful, makes me want another baby so bad. Beautiful video, I will sure to pass it on as well through facebook.

I love standing births - I have had a handful of clients give birth this way recently.
Wonder why they didn't dry baby off? Looks cold to me.
And the rush to cut the cord???

What a beautiful birth! I am preparing for my first natural birth, had pit & epi w/my son and love this kind of video. SO inspiring.

I was with my sister both times as she birthed her boys at The Baby Place. The midwives there (Colleen and Jerusha in the clip) are amazing, the center is serene and beautiful.... I wish I could have one in my town. They don't rush to cut the cord....that may have been some editing by cameraman to show the important moments.
I gave birth to my third child standing in the middle of my living room, supported by my husband and midwife, caught and pulled my baby up myself... it was by far my fastest and easiest birth, no tearing (9#6oz baby). I love gravity!!

I love this video! It made me sad though. Those midwives are mother and daughter and can no longer practice. It breaks my heart. They're both really incredible women. <3 Such an empowering video!!
