10 Birth Videos Every Pregnant Mama Should Watch

Birth was my worst fear.... until it wasn't

It was another day, another birth.

As a doula, I have the privilege of being at all kinds of births. Today’s birth was a homebirth.

Mom was peacefully in labor, meditating and resting between contractions.

I stepped out to get a drink of water for myself and some for the mom, dad, and midwives as well.

It was then that I ran into the ‘nanny’ for the week – the mom’s teenage niece who had flown in to watch the other kids for the week.

“How is she?” She asked me.

“Doing great!” I said with a smile.

“I could never do it.” She said.

“Do what?” I asked.

“Have a baby.” She said. “Birth is my biggest fear.” She said.

I smiled and nodded, remembering when I thought the exact same thing.

What I would do to go back and give my younger self the knowledge and experience I have now. And yet, if I did that… would I be here today, helping other moms breakthrough this same fear?

Can Birth Videos Help You Break The Cycles Of Pain And Fear About Birth?

The truth is, that it’s totally normal to fear birth. But it doesn’t mean that birth on it’s own is scary.

I was once at a Tony Robbins Event where Tony claimed fear doesn’t really exist.

I know it sounds crazy, but let me explain.

He went on to say that what we call fear is usually just the awareness we have of a vulnerability that leaves us at risk for danger or pain.

Here are some things you can learn by watching birth videos:

  • Learn what it looks like to cope with a contraction
  • See how different women like to be supported
  • Understand that birth is physiologically sound
