I borrowed this DVD from my midwife and just finished watching it - it's just incredible, the mama makes it look so easy. The first twin (Psalm) was a usual head-down delivery, and the second twin (Zoya) was breech. Their mother was so calm and in control...wow. I'm just in awe. I admire those of you who have or could give birth unassisted...I think I'd need more than my own reserves to keep me calm!

So, has anyone else seen this? If not...ask your midwife if she has a copy. The several that I've met over the past few months have all raved about it. I wish I'd watched it sooner.

I have one other of her DVDs to watch tonight and will probably be back to comment on it as well!

It's just amazing... My midwife really didn't tell me much about it, just "watch this" - so I was shocked to see Zoya's little foot come out first. Had no idea one was breech. It was so cool to watch, I don't think I'd seen another video of a breech birth!

I haven't seen it but I would love to. I like the occasional MW assisted story, but UCs always seem to be my favourite.
