My midwives just gave me a birth video (surprisingly a unassisted twin delivery video which we haven't screened yet) but I wanted to check to see if anyone had any other suggestions as well. There is one on you tube that is a waterbirth set to a beautiful song "Olive's Homebirth". My kids have seen it a billion times and I think given that they will have the option of being present that we are ready for something equally beautiful but a next step. Maybe equally as non graphic but with some moaning?
My DS is 4 and is a very sensitive kid. While I am understanding that he may not want to be around while I am laboring - I'm trying to help him understand that if I cry out or moan that it's not something to get upset over.
