Help! Need birth videos!

So last night my midwife suggested I start showing Jesse (just turned 3) some birth videos. We're planning on having him at the birth (with his own attendant) and want him to be prepared for it. At this point, he thinks the baby is going to come out of my belly button. So it'd probably be a good idea to prepare him a bit. She suggested starting with videos with mostly music and no "birth sounds" and then building up to to videos with mamas moaning/vocalizing, etc....

Anyways, if anyone here knows of any good ones, please post them! Thanks!

Here's one that goes through a whole pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Not at all graphic, and is set to music. Might be a good starting point

I'm too emotional now to look for any more! Between that video and the woman singing in labor -I'm a mess! LOL

oh maybe Emily will pop on, there was a site that we were both oogling months ago that had pictures of homebirths, they had different sections of graphic to not graphic at all, it was a great site, yeesh my baby brain, I wish I could remember it for you. message her on FB, I'm sure she'll remember.

I guess we did it wrong, LOL! We just put on "The Business of Being Born" and fast-forwarded to the first birth, and then ot the next, and the next. Blum 3

I LOVE this one! Jesse watched it all...he's watched a few today! I was a bit worried about himm being scared with the moaning and stuff, but I explained that getting a baby out was hard work and that the mommy was soon going to be really happy and he was OK with it. He was so interested in it all! Smile

Anyone have any more?

I thought the same Amber! But I figured the majority of the video is so nice and calm and wonderful and I really did want him to see some screaming to prepare him and this one seemed to be one of the best ones I found!!! He *seems* to understand, but of course that's a strange woman and not his mama, so we'll see how he does at the birth Smile
