On Video: Mom Births in Front Seat as Dad Drives

On Video: Mom Births in Front Seat as Dad Drives

A DFW midwife I know emailed me this short video of one of her clients birthing in the front seat of her Ford Focus. Dad is driving (on the way to the birth center) and catches the end of the birth on video. Mom catches her baby, unwraps the cord and brings baby to her chest. In the moment, you just do what you have to do. I cried and laughed at the same time as I watched. Amazing.

*It is not advised to freebirth at home. If you choose to have an unassisted birth, be prepared and have back up plans. Unassisted birth can be wonderful, but is not a safe option for everyone. ~Mrs. BWF

This video is incredible and I’ll tell you why. I could absolutely relate to the raw intensity and “Oh my God” feeling this mom had. That moment when you are completely stretched open and baby is descending is the craziest experience. You have absolutely no control over anything except how you react. When the feeling is at its most intense, the next thing you know, you are holding your precious newborn baby.

(There is a little language right after baby is born.)

“It’s SO AMAZING to see so many women educating and informing themselves as to what birth should be. We are so happy that we were able to find the knowledge that we did to make an informed decision and have a natural birth with our 3rd child. What a difference not being induced artificially makes!!! It’s about time women take their power back and start birthing the way nature intended!!!! Thank you for your site and information- I am proud to be a part of it.” ~Savannah

What happens after a baby is born at home?

Betsy sent me her video put together by One Tree Photography to show what it is like after baby is born at home. She says…

“This film is of the birth of my third baby. She was born in June.

My first birth was a hospital birth in which I narrowly avoided a c-section. My baby spent five days in the NICU. We both suffered.

My second birth allowed me to heal.

And my third birth was simply joyful. I’m so grateful to have had the experience.

Our photographer and midwife missed the birth because after two days of latent labor, my body sped right through active labor and pushing very quickly! My husband snapped a few photos of me in transition and then a few right after the baby was born. He guided her out of my body himself! The photographer arrived a bit later.

I’m so proud of this film and would love for you to share it! I think it shows how peaceful and family-oriented birth can be.”

Breech Birth Video: Faith in God and His Will

Amanda sent her video in to share with the BWF Mamas. Her journey, after a loss and finding out her baby was breech took a lot of research, education and faith. She was open to listening to her instincts and to God. Her faith in both carried her through fearing another loss, finding out her baby was breech and how to birth, then finding support in having a vaginal breech birth! Thank you Amanda for sharing your journey, your courage and your faith with us. ~Mrs. BWF

2 Videos to Inspire You for Your Birth

I am getting more into watching birth videos as I am somewhere around 30 weeks. This is when my confidence starts building up as I start to focus more on my upcoming birth. Here are a few videos I watched this week that I just love.

This mama used Hypnobabies techniques to trust birth and stay peaceful and calm. She totally gave over to the process!

A BWF mama shared this on the BWF Facebook page. It is gorgeous, raw and beautifully edited. Took my breath away.
