The new birth trend you won’t believe

In recent years, more and more parents have made the decision to photograph and film their child’s birth – with some even going so far as to hire professionals for the job.  There is no doubt these photos and videos are documenting a truly special and memorable experience, and are a great way for the parents to reflect on their child’s birth.  However these videos are no longer for being kept for the exclusive view of families, with the uploading of birth videos to You Tube becoming the new birth trend.

Since posting her video of Oliver’s birth last year, it has been viewed over 16,000 times and Gemma has received overwhelming positive feedback from women all around the world, congratulating her on sharing what a ‘real’ birth looks like.

Gemma certainly isn’t alone, a You Tube search of ‘Live Childbirth Video’  results in an incredible 1.3 million videos from across the world.  And that number is likely to continue to rise, with Gemma receiving many messages of support along with  inspiring other women to do the same – including her sister Emily who has already shared the birth of her daughter with the world and plans to again with her next child due in August.

She has a super sweet tooth and enjoying a slice of cake (or two) is one of her guilty indulgences. As a Mum of two little boys, when she isn't creating fun activities for the kids or breaking up arguments over toy trucks and cars, you will find her in the kitchen baking up a storm - or hiding in the pantry with the latest cooking magazine and a hot cup of coffee!
