5 Of The Best Beautiful Birth Stories On YouTube
If you're pregnant and love nothing more than hearing about other women's positive, personal birth experiences, then we have just the thing for you. Or if you're just obsessed with watching birth stories on YouTube (like me!), you've come to the right place!
You can read endless books and articles about childbirth, but nothing fully prepares you for the actual event itself. However, there is something incredibly special about a mother telling her birth story to camera. Listening to her describe every moment, watching her face gloss over with sheer joy, or wince at the memories of those not so favourable moments! Seeing a few clips from the event itself, getting a fully rounded picture of how things went down, can really help you understand the whole process.
So, with that in mind, I've pulled together 5 of my absolute favourite birth stories from some of the top vloggers from the wonderful world of YouTube!
1. Louise Pentland: Positive Home Birth Story
Louise gave birth to her second baby girl at home in a birthing pool, using hypnobirthing and a good sense of humour! Following on from her first birth story, which she describes as traumatic and unpleasant, this beautifully positive birth was just what Louise was aiming for. Meet baby Pearl!
2. Meet My BABY GIRL! | Fleur De Force
First-time mom Fleur introduces her gorgeous baby girl, River Wren, and talks through the ups and downs of her caesarian section birth experience, plus balancing her hormones post-birth.
3. A POSITIVE BIRTHING VIDEO | THE MICHALAKS
This beautiful video, highlighting just how positive the birthing experience can be, was shared by Stef and Hannah Michalak last year, and I wrote about it here. Watch as the family prepare for their impending arrival in a beautifully shot video, and experience their at-home water birth along with them!
4. Giovanna Fletcher: The One When There's a Birth Story...
Mum, vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress, Giovanna Fletcher, talks us through the birth of her second baby, Buddy!
5. Anna Saccone: Meet Alessia | My Labour & Delivery Story
