Water birth Video

This is a great water birth put out by the Natural Birth Center in California.

There are a few things I like about this video. It shows a family birth with relatives and siblings.

The  mother connecting with her baby is very sweet. Every time the midwife takes the mothers hand off the babies head the mother puts it right back on. Not sure why the midwife is obsessed with rinsing the babies head, either she is trying to stimulate the baby or keep it warm with the warm water from the tub. The baby is a bit limp and not real pink but it appears not in any distress as there is some flexion of limbs and attempts at crying.

I feel like many midwifes could actually do a little bit less then they do. It’s all in the training.

Would love to hear from you. Please leave a reply.
