This video follows the Malcolm family as they prepare for the home lotus water birth of their twins. Scenes of family life with their other two children are shown, followed by fascinating footage of the births as each baby is gently born and cuddled in the water. The management of the placenta and the lotus birth is also described.
Commentaries are provided by the midwife and both parents. An article by Dr Sarah Buckley is provided and the protocol for managing a lotus birth is also included as DVD extras.
