BabyCenter.com features three videos of live births under different circumstances. One features a midwife performing a natural birth, one features a birth with an epidural, and one features a cesarean section birth.
Women elect to have their children's births videotaped for many reasons, including a sense of history, the ability to see accurately events they may not remember clearly due to chaos surrounding the birth, and to show to their children eventually. As of 2015, rates for birth videography vary, depending upon the service. Videography can cost several hundred dollars to $1,000 or more, depending on whether it includes video of just the child's first hours, or the entire birth.
