http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoBPfPnq8nQ This is a great example of unnecessary interventions. These women seem to be trying to dig the baby out. They are pulling the babies head, pushing on the mom’s stomach. It is nightmarish. Wow. Notice how the poor infant is poked and prodded and slapped. Now go watch a natural birth video right now.
This is a nice video by Laura Shanley who wrote the book “Unassisted Childbirth” and runs the site www.unassistedchildbirth.com. The concept of not using a doctor or midwife at all makes so much sense when you come to terms with the fact that a woman’s body already knows how to give birth and will do [...]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xath6kOf0NE&feature=player_embedded Notice how the supine birthing position (on the back) aims the babies head at the poor mother’s tail bone. Tail bones are often broken by unnatural forced pushing while in this ridiculous position. Always remember that other than standing on your head, the supine position is the worst position for the mother and baby. [...]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkDdcZZloEM&feature=player_embedded Although this is not a particularly traumatic hospital birth, any time a woman is on her back, she is positioning for the benefit of the hospital staff, not her baby or herself.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZ0ZzY-gaZc This is another great example of why unassisted childbirth is best for mother and child. This is a short, silent clip of another hospital birth video. Hospital childbirths are always disturbing and here is another great example. First of all, notice the birthing position. The poor mother is nothing more than a vagina to [...]
I don’t normally care for childbirth videos that are taken from between mom’s legs while she is lying down. For one thing, it cements the idea in the viewer’s head that this is an appropriate position for childbirth, when it is actually the worst. Secondly, it is normally demeaning, degrading and objectifying to women as [...]
This is a lovely waterbirth video from YouTube. Notice how the noises the mother is making sound much more pleasurable than the agonizing moans you hear from most mothers who choose the medical model of childbirth. While this waterbirth does have a midwife in attendance, the midwife seems to do a fairly decent job of [...]
This was another lovely unassisted childbirth video from Laura Shanley. The ending of this short video almost brings tears to my eyes. Would you rather be this baby or the baby chemically blasted from the womb of your mother screaming in agony only to be dragged away by the latex gloved hands of strangers? Its [...]
