Malakai's Hospital Water Birth Video

This is a beautiful video of a hospital water birth. This mom had 3 home births prior to this birth. I love how the midwife and attendant waited outside the room while she labored, and that mom caught her own baby. Things were done while she held him in the tub. This was the first water birth in this particular hospital. They had just updated their policies to allow water birth, and they accommodated the family by moving the bed out of the room to make room for the tub which the family provided themselves.

  1. I was going to comment but it quickly became so long I figured I better blog about it on my own blog. Hope that's okay to repost this video there. It's an amazing and beautiful birth. Every mom and nurse/midwife needs to see this video to realize what is possible. Awesome!
