There are a number of documentaries out there that detail the different aspects and behind the scenes medical aspects of pregnancy and childbirth, including using traditional doctors and hospitals verses home birth with a midwife, what to expect during your pregnancy, and the medical mysteries of childbirth. What are pregnancy documentaries? Without having information, it’s hard to understand the science behind pregnancy, what your pregnancy will be like, and especially how to take care of a newborn.
