My doula alerted me of this video of an elephant birth. Warning: It's dramatic, graphic, and intensely amazing.
Mama elephant, on all fours, delivers her baby. But when the baby elephant wasn't moving I started to worry. Finally baby gets up and soon after starts taking first baby steps.
Birth is just amazing!
When I was about 15 years-old, I watched as my dog gave birth to six puppies. One wasn't breathing and my mom gave her mouth-to-mouth. She lived. I'll never forget that experience -- it was beautiful.
Have you ever seen a live animal birth before?
