Giving birth is not the easiest thing in the world but new Mum Audra Lynn seems to have made it so easy!

The footage of her water birth in Orange County, California has stunned social media as the baby seemingly pops out after just a few contractions.

The clip was uploaded to Instagram and Facebook and has now had more than 16 million views since it was posted on September 3.

Midwife Lisa Marie Sanchez Oxenham told the BBC that it was an ‘incredible moment.’

“It’s an amazing, uneventful delivery,” Lisa Marie said.

“What you cannot quite see in the video is that the head is already out. So I tell Audra to wait for the next contraction, and that’s when the baby flies out.

“The mother’s joy is so moving. When she says ‘my baby son’, it makes many people cry. It is such an incredible moment.”


The footage has been shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook and already has 23,000 comments.

Lisa Marie says she’s not surprised the video has been so popular.

“I believe the video has gone viral because it’s such a beautiful moment, in an intimate, private and relaxed atmosphere,” she said.

“That is something we just don’t associate with childbirth anymore and certainly don’t see enough of.”
