Does anyone know of a birth video...?

...that shows a baby emerging with little or no touching by anyone, or by only the mom? I am thinking of doing a follow up to my blog post on homebirth and neonatal outcomes with some videos--I want to link to the "Birth Trauma" chiropractic video that was posted here a while ago (http://vimeo.com/5695045) that shows aggressive pulling on the baby and talks about how it is harmful to their spine alignment, and then contrast it with one where the baby just slides out--it is hard to find videos where you get a good view of the baby coming out that don't have a lot of touching of the baby, but I'm sure there are some out there...it can be a land or water birth. I found on that was a waterbirth in a clear tub that was pretty good, but then the mom kept the baby under water for what felt like a long time, and the baby was fine, but I'm a little hesitant to use that one for that reason, because people might find that disturbing.

I know I've seen a couple on youtube. In fact I KNOW of one that was born into the water with out any touching and the baby floated in the water for about 5-10 sec before the mother or midwife pulled it out.

Here's one, it's quick- starts with the head already born. But it's nice.

Actually, looking around this this was fun cause my 3 year old was fascinated. Love sharing that love of birth with her.

it can be hard to find a specific type of birth video on youtube without watching a million of them...thanks, Jordan, I think I will use that one...though I can put more than one if anyone else finds a good one
