Giving birth is one of the most incredible human experiences. But it's also messy, painful and scary. Not all men cope with supporting their partners through it very well - some panic, others are not present at all... But let's not tar everyone with the same brush - men are not all like that and here is the proof on film.
For the birth of their second child, this couple planned everything. They decided to have a home birth with a midwife using a birthing pool.
Lasting several minutes, this video shows us this painful reality but also the beauty of birth. From supporting her through labour to the very first cuddles as a family to helping cut the umbilical cord, this dad is fully hands-on and totally involved in the birth. There's an especially magical moment at the end of the video when the couple's older daughter gets to meet her baby sibling for the very first time.
