Mum’s Water Birth Video Stuns the Internet




For Audra Lynn from the Orange County, California, giving birth was a textbook delivery. Her water birth was filmed and the footage has stunned millions of people on the social media as the baby appears to pop out after just several contractions.

The video was posted on Facebook and Instagram on September 3, and so far it has reached over 16 million views. The person who filmed the birth was Lisa Marie Sanchez Oxenham, who was the midwife that described the moment as incredible and uneventful at the same time.

She told the new mother to wait for the upcoming contraction, which is when the baby comes out. The moment when Audra says ‘my baby son’ is very touching and has moved so many people. The video attracted 23,000 comments, and over 100,000 shares on Facebook.

People praise her concentration and calmness during the whole process on Facebook, some women saying they wish their deliveries are like Audra’s. The midwife believes the footage has gone viral thanks to the private, intimate, and relaxed atmosphere of such a beautiful moment, something which is no longer associated with childbirth.
