After a bad experience with the hospital birth of our first daughter, we decided we would never again go to the hospital to have a baby. This is the birth experience of our second daughter, born at home, in water. I loved it! It was an absolutely amazing and beautiful experience!
After having four children in the hospital my wife wanted to try a homebirth. She talked me into it and this was our experience. We had three more at home after this experience.
the movie of me giving birth. I gave birth May 19, 2007 to my son weighing 8 lbs. 6.7 oz. Natural childbirth was hard but it was worth it. I had the epi with my daughter so this time I wanted to go natural. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
this is the birth of our second daughter in water at a freestanding birth center with amazing midwives!! enjoy!!
Information about what a childbirth doula is and how the process works. Created by Birth Works Doula Services of Little Rock, Arkansas (*******www.littlerockdoulas****/).
Women who look into alternative childbirth options find their greatest asset in partners - those they choose to surround themselves with during their birthing time.
Traditionally, these partners are women: midwives, doulas, sisters, mothers, friends, and daughters. More recently, these have also included partners/husbands as well.
Who a woman chooses to attend her during her birthing time greatly influences the type of birth and level of satisfaction she will experience in her birthing time.

This is the birth of my first daughter in water in 2006.it took 16 and a half hours ladies!! but it was an empowering, life changing experience. There is no comparison to doing something so profound for your baby as to have natural, gentle birth..to have that baby placed in your arms for as long as you want...no harsh paper curtains, no bulb syringes shoved down their throat..no being seperated from mama..just that awesome skin on skin, bonding. i encourage all low risk healthy mama's to give this gift to their baby..and to themselves! you can birth naturally and drug free mama's!! it's amazing!

This title takes a captivating look at your baby's growth during pregnancy. Using 3-D and conventional ultrasound images, two professors of radiology at Harvard Medical School give you a unique look into how your baby develops, from conception to birth. Drs. Peter Doubilet and Carol Benson explain what each image shows and what medical professionals look for to ensure that the baby is developing normally. The 3-D images show the baby's "outside," while the conventional ultrasound images, along with the medical explanation and unique drawings, help you understand what's happening with your baby's organs, skeletal and digestive systems, brain, and heart. Not to mention how to tell if it is a girl or a boy before birth!
