Can anyone recommend a childbirth video that's suitable for a six-year-old to watch?

DS (6) announced this morning that he'd like to see how a baby is born. He knows a baby grows in a mummy's tummy and that it is pushed out and where it comes out, and would like to see. If I can find a video that isn't traumatic or distressing, in the spirit of being open this kind of thing, I'd like to show him.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

DD1 was 6 when I was pg with DS

Naturally was v v interested in all things baby-related, inc pg and birth

That series 'One Born Every Minute' was on around that time

I let her and DD2 watch the episode (think it wasd the 2nd one) which featured the Mum having her 3rd (or 4th - can't remember). Was a straightforward, no intervention, hospital vaginal delivery IIRC

Her husband was a bit of a tit in it though hmm And she had her teenage son with her too

Could you show one with an animal instead? Might be easier to find.
