  • I don’t think the video works any more as others have commented.
    I personally would not opt for a water birth. I would be petrified that the baby may inhale or swallow water. The baby would need a thorough to check that there was no water in his/her lungs that could result in secondary drowning if it was a home birth as well.


  • Pity the video isn’t working any more – however, like another mom on here – I wouldn’t like a video to be made of me when giving birth. Don’t think it would have happened they wouldn’t have had time to get their camera out with my births.


  • Video wasn’t working for me either. A pity, would have loved to see such precious and magical moment !


  • Video wasn’t working when I tried to play it.


  • Oh, I wouldn’t like to be filmed in such a personal moment, but how amazing!!!
