Mammals have been giving birth since, well, mammals existed. With the exception of the duck-billed platypus, laying eggs really isn't a mammal thing. I know all of this, because I was so nervous about having a baby that doing an internet search all about nature and birth seemed like a good way to keep calm If you're feeling a bit anxious, then you might find comfort in the fact that there are plenty of birthing videos that'll make you feel better about what you're about to do. And I'm not talking about the awkward and antiquated educational films you had to watch in grade school, either.
After watching some of these birthing experiences, you just can't help but feel empowered, emotional, and even a little excited about what you're going to be doing in the very near future. It's totally normal to be freaked out by the fact that a tiny human is about to come out of your body (I always imagined that scene from Aliens, you're welcome). But you don't have to let that overwhelm you or detract from the fact that you will soon become a mother to a beautiful bundle of joy. So grab the Kleenex and check out these amazing videos that capture the miracle of childbirth.
