    Parenting Tips: A Natural Childbirth

    Being able to have a natural childbirth was the most amazing, beautiful, wonderful experience I could ever have dreamed of and imagined. It certainly wasn’t easy. It was so worth it. And I was so aware of what was going on with him and in my body, and I was so in tune with it. I experienced the whole thing. I wasn’t in a daze going through it. And he came out healthy and alert, and we were able to start bonding immediately. It was just incredible. I had gone through this pregnancy teacher’s training course and learned so much and decided that I really wanted to opt for a…

    Midwife Supervised Childbirth: Birth The Way Your Body Intended

    Giving birth is actually a natural process. It’s not a disease. So there’s really no need to go to hospital to give birth. You can do a homebirth and have a licensed midwife with you in that process. I highly recommend it because when you give birth in a hospital, you’re at the discretion and the timeframe of the doctors who may want to go home, go play golf, go do whatever they want to do. They may speed up things, or whatever, but when you’re doing a homebirth, you’re actually on your time schedule. You get to decide, or your body gets to decide, how and when the baby…

    Sheila Kitzinger on the fear that exists in childbirth

    Subtítles by Toni Harman oneworldbirth.net Sheila Kitzinger Fear of Failure Well when you go into hospital you become a patient. Of course, you may not think yourself so much as a patient.

Women are apologetic about what they do in birth. They feel that they must somehow have caused something to go wrong. And I…

    Ending Newborn Deaths: Karen Elson in Sierra Leone

    Hi, I’m Karen Elson, and we’re here in Sierra Leone, in Pujehun. We’re going to go to a clinic where there’s a midwife called Elsie, and we’re going to talk to her about the newborn initiative. I’m really curious to see what you do at this wonderful clinic that you have here. This clinic here serves around 3000 mothers and children. There are only 2 midwives here. I’m wondering why she decided to come to this clinic. She wants her life to be safe. People are far away from us. 5 miles they walk to come and deliver here. But there are no bikes, no motorcars to come with them.…
