Lay it on me, ladies-- what have been your favorite ONLINE resources for learning and educating yourself about homebirth?

 

I've done some reading here and there, and watched some videos, but I'd love to have your input.  TIA!

Anybody else have some videos? Articles?  A favorite book or two would be great also, but free online resources would be most appreciated!

I found this video recently of an unassisted German homebirth with the mom standing up and catching her baby herself. It's my current favorite.

Not online (that I know of) but I like "OB myths vs research realities" by Henci Goer. It's expensive though so try to see if the library has it. Also you don't have to read the whole thing (it's thick) but the intro to each chapter is interesting.

For books I think my favorite so far was "Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth" (or something like that).

Lots of MWs will have a library - mine had an amazing selection of out of print books that were so fun to read. Sorry, don't have titles.

found another youtube video that is nice. this is another unassisted (I plan on a midwife, but you never know if you will be alone, even when planning hospital). I really like that this one shows her removing the cord from around the neck, also has a lot of vernix (but a nice sized baby).
