An incredible mum shared the moment she welcomed her newborn twins with absolutely zero pain relief in her living room at home.

Sarah Schmid, 38, who lives in France, has welcomed all eight of her children out of hospital, without any medical assistance.

And she has filmed each free-birth and posted them online so that people could watch, racking up a following of over 40,000.

In the clip, Sarah could be seen pushing while standing up in her living room, while her other kids played around her, seemingly unfazed by what was going on.

Sarah - who trained to be a doctor but is now a stay-at-home mum - has previously welcomed babies in the Swedish forest and her back garden, too.

She and her husband Tim, 43, are also parents to Johanna, 13, Jonathan, 11, Emanuel, nine, Elisabeth, seven, Konstantin, five, and Kiran, three.

And she was determined for her twins, Samuel and Sarah, now 10 months old, to be born naturally, too.

Looking back on the experience, Sarah said: "I was surprisingly fearless with the twins.

"The birth itself only took about five hours and my husband caught both twins, Samuel and Sarah.

"I had a photographer and a friend in the room too, with the other kids able to come in and watch if they wanted for some of it.

"I had no fear - I prepared thoroughly for a twin birth, and I felt like it was an adventure into unknown territory.

"I paid more attention to everything, did more research and talked to midwives, more than I would have done with a singleton."

Sarah said that she's hopeful that by sharing her experiences of giving birth, other women will be less scared, however they choose to welcome a little one.

While, Sarah says, some people believe free-birthing is 'irresponsible' and can even result in death if anything were to go wrong, she's adamant that it can be done safely.

"I would like to educate women, so that more will choose their mode of birth not based on fears and feelings of inferiority but based on trust, knowledge and intuition," she added.

"I feel like the media promotes birth as a medical emergency where doctors are saving a baby from a screaming mother.

"I wanted to show that birth can be a joyous, peaceful event in the family.

"Pain itself wasn't really an issue - if anything the twins were my easiest birth, most likely because their heads were smaller."

Sarah has since written a book, entitled Freebirth - Self-Directed Pregnancy and Birth, in order to help other mothers keen to give birth without assistance.
