Expecting a baby? These child birth videos are a good opportunity to learn what to wait for during your delivery. Getting prepared and being aware of what happens is an essential part of a safe delivery. There are both animated and natural childbirth videos, including normal vaginal childbirth, homebirth in the water and Cesarean Section (C-section).

|Cesarean Section (C-Section)
This 3D medical animation shows the common indications for a cesarean delivery, including dystocia, placenta previa, fetal distress and multiple births. A cesarean section (c-section) surgery to deliver a baby in frank breech (feet first) position is also shown. During the procedure, the surgeon (usually an obstetrician/gynecologist, i.e. ob/gyn) makes an incision in the abdominal wall and uterus in order to deliver the baby. The animation also includes information on what to expect before and after the surgery.
|C-section at Mangiagalli hospital
6700 babies were delivered in Milano hospital in 2007. 40% of them were delivered with the help of Cesarean section. Such a high rate of C-sections is explained by a considerable number of pathological pregnancies. Warning: this child birth video contains details of surgical intervention, which is not for the faint-hearted.
