This film documents the birth of Stella, Helen’s sixth baby. The whole family participates in the event at a Birth Centre. As the labour progresses Helen sets up the birth room, and cares for her younger children while stopping now and then to deal with contractions. The baby is born in water, to everyone’s delight. Includes Helen’s reflections 2 weeks later as she talks through her experiences. This would be a useful film for preparing siblings for attending a birth.
