So I'm finally building a dvd lending library. Suggestions to add to the list, anyone?
business of being born
mom to DS 9/8/8 , married to my best friend since 10/15/05 , ,, After TTC #2 for a really long time we're expecting #2 in December! Hope to , Doula in the Indianapolis area, PM me if you want to talk!
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!
Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator serving Northern VA and the Metro DC area.
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.
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!
Lovin my sweet babygirl 3-17-10 and expecting another in March!
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.
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.
