What Are Some Sources of Educational Birth Videos?

Some online sources of educational childbirth videos include Lamaze International and BabyCenter. The videos hosted by these websites depict and explain many different aspects of childbirth, including what to expect during natural births and births in hospitals.

Lamaze International provides educational videos of healthy birth practices, which include letting labor begin on its own, having continuous support during the childbirth process and keeping the baby with the mother after the birth. The purpose of these videos is to provide education regarding the benefits of natural birth experiences and avoiding medical interventions unless they are absolutely necessary, explains Lamaze International.

BabyCenter has videos on natural births and also on births involving epidurals, Cesarean sections and inductions. This website also provides educational videos on how to ease labor pains and how to recover from C-sections.
