Editorial Reviews

Natural Born Babies presents a modern account of today's natural childbirth. Told by 10 mothers, this program chronicles their journeys to challenge the conventional hospital birth model to give birth in their own way. Resurgence interest in natural childbirth has led a record number of women to midwife-directed centers, where high-quality care combined with a nurturing environment is at the forefront of a movement. This movement seeks to dispel the inaccurate picture and practices of modern Western medicine. Gone are the days when midwifery was primitive and outdated. The modern midwife is presented in this film as she puts women and children first. Lorri Walker, RNC, NP, CNM, one of Southern California's best-known midwives, shares her insights and wisdom overcoming the medical model of birth. Birth professionals often overlook and disregard important subjects about birth. Hear an honest account of birth plans, Cesarean Sections, safety, unnecessary interventions and reluctant fathers as they are addressed - perfect for persuading any skeptic. This program attempts to separate midwifery from a tarnished reputation and years of misinformation and negative publicity that has been propagated by the medical community.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

2.0 out of 5 stars nice stories but just an ad October 13, 2011
By Katy
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am a doula and childbirth educator looking for educational aids. This video has a good selection of people's experiences of natural/home birth, but it is little more than an advertisement for the midwifery service in California who paid to create it. If you are interested in people's experiences, this might be helpful, but it had very little visual interest and almost no actual information about childbirth. I am disappointed and wish I had spent the small amount of money to rent it first. I am more than a little annoyed at having been misled into spending money to purchase someone else's commercial.

3.0 out of 5 stars informational March 18, 2013
By angel
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Overall it was an informational video but it only really talks about home birth and neglects to discuss the possibility of having a natural birth at a hospital or birthing center. Since I am a high risk but still want to do a natural birth this information was not as helpful for me personally and I would have liked some more different information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potentially life changing June 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I watched this short video per recommendation of my pregnancy forum. After listening to all these highly educated professionals speak about their home birth experience, I am almost conviced I have the strenght and the power to deliver my baby on my own, at home, with the privacy and intimacy this life event deserves. I have yet to make my decision, but this video has greatly influenced me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for an uplifting view of natural birth August 18, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I found this short film to give me inspiration to make it through the last 2 months of my pregnancy knowing that I would have a homebirth at the end of it. For a more educational perspective on the same type of information, I would watch The Business of Being Born or Orgasmic Birth. It explains in detail the types of unnecessary interventions that are mentioned in this film. Natural Born Babies is a great intro to those who haven't yet considered a natural birth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of home birth or birthing center April 29, 2010
Format:DVD
This is a great little 24ish minute long dvd to give you a very brief overview of the natural birth experience. It is put together by a birthing center in California. I found it helpful because the people interviewed were more, in my opinion, normal moms and dads. They weren't your all natural, organic, hippie-granola crowd. Rather, they were more along the lines of a make-up consultant or an anesthesiologist. Normal women can do this too. :)When we were warming my parents up for a home birth (a new concept to them), this was the video I wanted them to see, to help them understand what we were aiming for.

These women sound so brainwashed, especially when they are talking about how awful it was when their family expressed concern about the safety of an out of hospital birth. "I'm not going to accept the fear." Ok, but then why are you drinking in the fear your midwives are spoon feeding you about doctors and hospitals? This is just an infomercial for home midwives, and it is not an objective video if you have concerns about you baby's life and brain function. But don't babies die at the hospital too? Sure, but not near at the rate they do at home or at birth centers. Check out Colorado or Oregon where midwives are required by law to report how many babies die.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying, endless chatter... January 25, 2013
By mjx
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was hoping for more of a personal or education film, but instead it was just people talking into a camera. The scene cuts from one person to another very quickly, so the chatter is endless... just a bunch of people jumbled together so quickly my pregnant brain couldn't stand more than five minutes. I got to part two and turned it off... Watching the Business of Being Born now, which is what I should have done in the first place!

3.0 out of 5 stars informative for some, boring for others June 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
You can get the point of the movie within the first few minutes…but it goes on and on…it is an interview style with different couples and their birth experience, but it doesn't show anything other than all of them telling their story, white background, boring…I only made it through the first maybe seven minutes hoping it was going to do something more…but alas, as we fast forwarded through it, nothing changed…same white background with the different couples telling their stories…it would have been more interesting with more imagery…but it was just a static series of interviews, nothing more…it could be informative and interesting for some and it's not that long, but for me…it was a snoozer. There are better videos on the subject that show, not just tell, the same concept…but I guess for some this is just another way to hear the stories of other parents natural birth experiences and in that sense, it is a useful resource.
