Myrtle Creek, Ore. â€“â€” May 19, 2009 â€“â€”
A truly unparalleled moment in time, the arrival of a newborn is also one of the most difficult events to effectively document on film.
â€™ newest royalty-free stock footage collection, Birth of a Baby, conquers that challenge and provides an exceptional and uncensored look inside the real-life human birthing process.
A graphic, yet true-to-life presentation, Birth of a Baby offers multiple camera perspectives including extreme close-up, doctor point-of-view of the birth itself. With over 40 high-quality clips depicting real-time capture of prenatal monitoring, step-by-step delivery process and post-birthing procedures, this footage is ideal for any filmmaker, documentarian or medical presenter in search of a complete library of accurate, cost-effective birthing footage.
â€œThis collection fills an industry void of in-depth human birthing stock footage,â€? explains President and Founder of Artbeats, Phil Bates. â€œWhile imagery of pre- and post-delivery processes may seem abundant, very few offer such vivid footage that fully depicts the story of a real-life birth. We’ve captured the true experiences of childbirth – the raw emotion and intense pain a mother must go through to bring new life into the world.â€?
Birth of a Baby offers high-quality cinematography of hard-to-capture moments, including:
â€¢ Pre-delivery preparation and heart rate monitoring
â€¢ Full, close-up views of the birthing procedure
â€¢ Motherâ€™s first interaction with newborn
â€¢ Doctorâ€™s perspective of post-delivery processes
â€¢ Newborn care such as weigh-in, immunizations and nursing, and
â€¢ Family visitation and interaction
Offered as individual clips or as a complete collection, Birth of a Baby is available in SD and HD formats and joins nearly 2,000 other medical and baby themed clips and collections in the Artbeats library.
