All the policies are not so black and white, you can videotape postpartum, or you can videotape labor and postpartum but not the birth. You can videotape vaginal deliveries but not cesareans. Some places will allow you to video or photograph with your doctor’s permission only. See Videos Showing Natural Childbirth in Various Settings.

Why You Should Make A Video Of Your Baby’s Birth. Creating a birth video is a great way to capture the important moments during your delivery so that you’ll have them to look back on in. Permission for Making a Video of Your Childbirth. Unless you are making a video of a home birth, you will want to check with the hospital or birthing center about their policies regarding recording your childbirth.

You will find many medical facilities have rules that: Prohibit the use of video recordings during surgery ; Require you to bring your own power source for video equipment. Another reason why mothers choose not to videotape or take pictures during the birth is fear of feeling “watched.” Stephanie Soderblom, doula and owner of BirthDiaries.com, reassures mothers saying, “I tell people that if they are wishy washy about it at all to do it I tell them that rarely do people even know that photos are being taken. An operative vaginal birth can result in worse tears to the perineum or the vagina.

The biggest risks that I talk to parents about is the risk of marks. You can see a little mark left by the suction. Narrator: Your baby may have temporary bruising or small cuts on his head or face that may last for several days.

You’ll deliver your baby during the second stage of labor. How long it lasts: It can take from a few minutes up to a few hours or more to push your baby into the world. It might take longer for first-time moms and women who’ve had an epidural. Doing so can significantly reduce your baby’s risk of neural tube birth defects, such as spina bifida. If you’re obese, consider losing weight before you attempt to conceive. (Never try to lose weight during pregnancy, though.) Your caregiver can help you figure out how to get down to a healthy weight.

Guidelines from the Institute of Medicine. Since an epidural numbs the entire area between your breasts and knees, you might wonder how you can push your baby out during labor. While some studies have looked at whether or not having an epidural alters how you push your baby out, the results have been mixed. You and your baby can experience some sedation and/or nausea.

According to Danforth’s Obstetrics and Gynecology, babies born to mothers who used Fentanyl to relieve pain during labor were less likely to need naloxone (medication to help with breathing) than babies born to mothers who used Demerol. However water birth is not widely practiced by doctors, since delivering in water can put your baby at risk for a number of rare but dangerous conditions and no scientific studies have confirmed the benefits during the second stage of active delivery, when the baby is pushed out.

  • 8:28 It’s reminiscent to kneading Bread Dough!
    As amazing as it is there are definitely pro’s and con’s to everything. Pre-programmed Designer Babies and Customizable Clones will be figured out with tech like this!
    Not to mention ReCo Sapiens(RC Humans).

  • Step 1. scream loudly and say I CANT BE A PARENT
    step 2. if the woman yells at you grab a book about women emotions and read it
    step 3. deliver the baby while vomiting all over yourself
    step 4. don’t mess with the baby god knows what will happen to it
    step 5. vomit even more.
    step 6. tell the ambulance drivers to get the mother away from you pronto
    step 7. if the police find you and you don’t have a medical license your going to jail

    step 8. go to jail and never see you parents again

    Yay

  • I’m not saying you need to have kids to really appreciate this but…wow…if you imagine your own son or daughter and all their little quirks & personality going through this and being born….just made tears shoot out of my face!

  • ok, but why? what’s the reason for this? Will he not be able to build strength later without doing this? Do we have bad time, so that we have to do this quickly? We do this, only to pass time? What’s the reason for doing this?

  • Glory to GOD…ONLY HE Can Do This…it is divinity, a growing life inside a woman’s body is a Miracle only God can give…I know I have birth eight babies vaginally! It awesome what God can do! Leaves even the most brilliant minds lost for words!

  • The identification of divinity behind it all speaks volumes about the greatness of God almighty present in Mr Alexender. May God bless you with happiness till you live.

  • At which point in the video were you going to put the babies on their tummies and show us the “Tummy time exercises”????????????? ��
