I don’t know if this mom was using any special tools to stay so calm during her birth.

But this video demonstrates wonderfully how birth can be peaceful, calm and beautiful!



  • Truly beautiful! I couldn’t help but cry. I bet the nurse was so thankful to be a part of something so different and amazing!

  • Beautiful! What a gifted woman. I just finished reading Ina May Gaskin’s Guide to Childbirth and she talks about how singing is supposed to be great for opening the cervix and relaxing a woman. It must really work to relax a person. I think I would be too self aware to sing by myself…maybe if everyone sang with me though! 😉

  • If you were to sing right now, yes, you might be too self aware. But during a birth, you are much more in touch with your primal self rather than your analytical self. Singing is like a friend, and women often feel more comfortable singing than making random grunting noises!

  • Beautiful!

  • Wow, don’t make me cry at work! The nurse was crying too, I love it…amazing – that baby just had the best intro to life outside the womb ever!
