Birth videos: Women share their natural births

accreditation
Birth is such a subjective experience. No woman's birth story is exactly the same. We take a look at 3 women's different experiences of natural birth:

Jackson's Birth

This mommy burst into tears when her little one finally made his way into the world.



Hope's Hypnobabies Hospital Birth

Hope used hypnotherapy to get through the pain of her labour and even though she was in labour for 16 hours it only felt like 6.



Accidental home birth

Labour was so fast the midwife didn't make it in time for this little one's birth. His mom gave birth to him in the bathtub while dad was letting her in.
