Birth Joy and Raspberry Leaves
an Amanda K Young production

     In 1998 Catherine Young, founder, owner and publisher of The Compleat Mother Magazine requested her readers send in videos of their joyful births which would be compiled into a single video experience. Catherine's daughter, Amanda, did the work.

     The result: "Birth Joy and Raspberry Leaves"

     You will see firsthand the beauty and tranquility of five births, all in water.

     The video is straightforward without little commentary. You can see and hear waterbirths which were filmed by family and friends.

       If you are looking for an expensively produced video with complex lighting and editing then this is not the video for you.

       But if you want to see how mothers give birth in water, plain and simple, taped in the natural homebirth settings, then by all means, buy this video You will be glad you did.

Home Sweet Homebirth (Video)

video cover

Midwives have existed since the beginning of humanity. Why, then, is it so difficult to find a midwife in America?  What events occurred between the mid 1800's until the present day which nearly made midwifery extinct in America? And why are more families now looking into homebirth as a refuge from hospital care?
Home Sweet Homebirth provides the answers. Interviews with noted doctors, historians and midwives. Very interesting and informative video.
