Childbirth craze that's taking the internet by storm

Lights, camera, action...

We all like One Born Every Minute.

But let’s be honest, most of it is edited to make great TV.


So we’re not really sure what to make of the latest trend of filming your own birth and then posting it on YouTube for the world to see.

That’s what two sisters – Gemma and Emily – have decided to do.

Gemma posted her 39-minute video onto YouTube, which attracted 16,000 people who watched her giving birth.

‘It makes me feel great that so many people have watched it,’ Gemma told the Daily Mail.

‘It really doesn’t bother me that men on my street may have seen me naked and giving birth. I’ve always thought of breasts as things to feed babies with rather than anything sexual.’

And it seems that many of us like this raw and natural approach to learning about childbirth.

Typing in ‘Live Childbirth video’ in YouTube brings up 1.3 million videos with a mix of hospital births, home births and birth in more obscure places.

And there’s a mix of the tame to the full on throws of labour and birth.

Would you do it? We’re not so sure we would.
