Mother’s Advocate posted a five-part video called The Timeless Way: A History of Birth from Ancient to Modern Times on its website in March 2010.
I posted this five part series here with the fourth part first (simply because I feel it’s the must-see video of the set because of the nature of the footage included), followed by the first, second, third and fifth parts.
Part 4: Changes in Birth Practices
Part 1: Birth Images from Ancient Times
Part 2: European Birth Images from the 1500s
Part 3: Birth Images from the 1800s
Part 5: Consequences of Modern Birth Practices
