Videos

 

 

After spending countless hours researching through You Tube and the internet for videos on Pregnancy, Birth, Breastfeeding and Parenting, I have boiled them down to a list of ones that I recommend. There are thousands of videos on these topics on You Tube, but not all of them are helpful. Some are misinformed and some are pretty traumatizing to watch, trust me. Here are some videos which I have found useful or inspiring.

Don’t just watch them. Think about what you fits with you. Do you agree or disagree with all the content? What kind of experience would you like to have? What is important to you?

If you have any other videos which you found helpful, or if you have questions or comments, leave a comment in the comment box below. Thanks!
