Under Her Own Steam DVD is a video about a delightful homebirth of a first baby in The Netherlands. The English commentary describes an active birth, with the mother using upright positions and using the bath for comfort. She gives birth in a supported squatting position after using a birth stool for the beginning of the second stage. The placenta arrives with the mother kneeling, followed by early breastfeeding and contact with the baby.
A positive DVD that has been well received by parents.
