Karla sent me her birth video and pictures to share with you. So gorgeous and can be found here.
Also, Alison sent me her last two birth videos, both incredibly inspiring!
Here is her first one. It was her 6th baby. She says, “My labor was 43 hours long and I love that these photos captured how much love and support that I had during his home water birth. I am now 38 weeks with #7 and looking forward to another birth day party very soon!”
Her second video was of her 7th baby’s birth. She says, “7th baby was born in February and Ceci did such a great job capturing his siblings anticipation and love.”
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.
I have written before how a breech baby is another variation of normal. Having a breech presentation does not mean you automatically need to schedule a c-section. Remember, our babies are wise and know just how they need to be for birth. Most of the time, babies will turn, even late in pregnancy and labor!!! You can read my other post for more thoughts, support and ideas here.
I want to share a few breech birth videos for inspiration. My first baby was breech and everyone I talked to said, “Sure, you can have a vaginal breech birth, but if it goes bad, it will do so fast.” Not very encouraging. I had no where to turn to for POSITIVE support. I bet you can guess what happened. I had a c-section. Would I now for a breech presentation? No way. Not automatically. I’d give my body and baby the chance to birth vaginally.
So, if you are finding yourself pregnant with a breech baby that is not turning, you have my support and the support of all the BWF mamas on Facebook!
Edited to add this new video. I can not comment on these techniques as I’m not a midwife or doctor, but it is definitely an very interesting breech birth video! If any OB’s or midwife care to comment, please do.
Another new video to add. An OB attended home birth of a breech baby.
