Young mum shares birth of baby on YouTube

This young mum wore full makeup as she delivered her own baby in the bath after just two pushes - sharing the event with nearly 700,000 viewers on YouTube.

For the past four years, Legaci Allong, 24, has documented every aspect of her life, including a heartbreaking miscarriage, on YouTube - the climax being her youngest son Hero's arrival on January 12 in an unassisted, unmedicated water birth at her home in Ontario, Canada.

During the 21-minute video - posted after Hero was safely delivered - she also shared tips with other mums on how to keep calm during labour, including “embracing” the pain of contractions by saying, "Yes", and "That feels good" out loud when they hit.
