I liked Pregnant in America, too. 

 

I've just ordered National Geographic's "In the Womb," which is more science-y. I haven't seen it yet, but will let you know how I like it once I do!

Baby-Led Breastfeeding is great. I'm still entertained every time I watch it.

I like lending/showing Penny simkins "Comfort Measures for Childbirth" and Mother Touch: Touch Tecniques for Birth

 

I find it helpful for explaining comfort measures, and mom and partner can take their time practicing different postions and techniques on their own time aside from when I get together with them.

Babies

It's not a birth video, but I give it to Mamas to watch during their leisure.

One Mama even used it to watch for her "distracton" during early labor.

It's a stress reducer for sure!

Baby-Led Breastfeeding is a great one. 

 

Also: Relaxation, Rhythm, Ritual: The 3R's of Childbirth is good, but Simkin's Comfort Measures is newer and better, imo.

 

Birth as We Know It has a 10 minute trailer on-line - http://www.birthasweknowit.com/10_minute_promo.html  It's a loooonnnnngggg movie, so 10 minutes might be all you need

 

I haven't seen this one yet, but I'm curious about it - Birth with Gloria LeMay - http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=476

 

Short and free are all the ones on the EnjoyBirth youtube page - www.youtube.com/enjoybirth

I highly recommend 'Doula!', it follows three doulas (with varying levels of experience, for one, it was her first birth as a doula!) and their clients, and the doulas speak about their work, and the film follows the doulas and clients, and their birth experiences.

The film is 30$ on amazon.

Best wishes!

I second Doula! It's an awesome one, and great to have couples and anyone else that will be present at the birth to watch so they can have a better idea of what we do.

I also love The BIg Stretch, it's an Australian film, and What Babies Want.

Doula!  is great, but my favorite is Birth Day - that's the one I would pick if I just had to pick ONE.  And it's not just for clients who have/are interested in homebirth.
