Well, my wife and I just found out we'er having our first baby. We are wanting to see some videos to have an idea what to look forward to. I did a search and didn't find much online that was free.

Anyone know of some online childbirth videos?

Thanks. I'm really nervous about it. It's one of those life milestones.

Congrats on your first baby.

We have 4....but wanted to tell you that you might rethink that video idea.

In fact, it might freak you out and scare your wife half to death.

My wife delivered our first child last weekend. It was a pretty short labor, we checked into the hospital around 11:00 am and the baby was born at 1:00 pm. There was no time for an epidural, so she did it natural style.

We attended a childbirth class several months back and we were shown a video of the whole disgusting process :D

I was born c-section.

That means when I leave the house, I go out the window.

Don't need video.

We did the same thing, took Lamaize classes for breathing exercises ie hees, hoos etc. When it came down to it, my oldest son was born in less than 10 minutes. My wife went into labor at home and the baby came faster than expected. Didn't get a chance to use the breathig techniques, epidurals. I would take the Lamaize classes just to go over the psysiology of birth etc.

Congrats, man! It was the best day of my life when we had ours. I would recommend that you not view a video of the event first. I was with my wife during delivery at the north end of the action, since I am a puss.

More like knock a hole in the wall.

You don't need a video. It will come out the pot without her watching the video.

At the risk of sounding a bit granola, consider taking a class in the Bradley Method of natural childbirth. My wife and I have had two children all-natural, and my participation in both events was the high point of my life. You will see videos in the classes if you take them, but you will be prepped about the basics beforehand, so it's not as shocking.

Also, feel free to IM me if you have any other questions.

Imagine a wet St Bernard trying to come in through the cat door.
