Disclaimer: This birthing video is too explicit and is not for people with a weak heart. If you are below 18 years of age, pregnant and fear natural delivery or are too judgemental in nature, refrain from pressing the play button.
Birthing is sacred. It is a private and an intimate experience of a mother. We celebrate the joy of birthing but seldom talk about what goes into labour and delivery. Mostly because there is a stigma attached to it. Mothers who wish to share their birthing experience are looked down upon and that’s the irony of our so-called modern society. Here is how you can plan your birth without violence.
What else can explain why Washington Post called a video shot by an Australian mother, giving birth to her fourth child as ‘National Shame.’ Of course, the video doesn’t attempt to beautify birth, except for its beautiful backdrop of the rainforest, nor does it try to make it look gross. It just shows us a natural birth as it should be. The mother had decided to birth her child amidst nature, and that is all she does, leave her worries and pains to be taken care of by Mother Nature. It is amazing to see how she changes position to get a comfortable, walks down the streams and trusts her body to do the best for her. No anaesthesia, birthing props, epidural — as we know about birthing in the modern day. Here are nine practical tips to help you go through a normal delivery.
A natural delivery is desired by many, but very few mothers have the courage to go that way. A hospital environment, doctors on call and staff around makes it feel safe. But birth in reality isn’t as dangerous as it is made to believe. In fact, a normal delivery is healthy for most mothers. Here are five things that happen to you after delivery and no one talks about.
This mother had the courage and nerve to do it. We salute her; we respect her decision and the way she took everything in her stride.
Many pointed this video as shameful, but her only motive was to make women aware of their body, trust their instinct and give the baby a beautiful birthing experience that’s without unnecessary interventions. Try not to judge her when you watch the video.
