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