A wonderful demonstration on why it is ideal to let the cord stop pulsing on its own!
Baby Friendly Hospital Policies make for an easier transition for baby. Even if your hospital isn’t baby friendly you can choose to do the positive things suggested in this video!
Baby right on Mom
Dry with a soft blanket
Skin to Skin for an hour before nurses do anything else
Baby can self latch.
Here is a link to a local new story about two amazing doctors in our little state! I just delivered my 2nd VBAC baby with them on the 24th. They have extremely low cesarean rates, and high VBAC rates. Also, when a cesarean is truly necessary, it is now the birthing culture at this hospital for moms to have immediate skin-to-skin contact with minimal separation, birth visualization through maternal propping, a calm environment with no extraneous noise or unrelated conversation by the medical staff, delayed cord clamping, presence of multiple support staff for mom and her birth partner, and breastfeeding in the operating room, if the mom desires! AND…these docs support Natural low/no intervention birth. They’ve supported several of my Hypnomoms!
Here’s a link to the story.
It also aired yesterday in Boston, Louisville, Chicago, Dallas, St. Louis, Miami and San Francisco. I hope you’ll share it with any moms who may be facing a necessary cesarean and all care providers! If moms know it’s a possibility, they’ll start asking for it. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for mom’s who NEED a cesarean, that this would just be the standard of care in the OR… “the norm”? I wish this was an option for my first daughter, I think it would have made my experience and postpartum period so very very different!

23 minutes of UNCUT footage of a Hypnobabies mom easing her own baby out into the world; her 2 boys running around, hubby taking photos, so calm, so confident, so relaxed, so easy and SO Comfortable.
No editing, no removal of any sound; just a peaceful, beautiful birth. She was in hypnosis the entire time and easily able to talk, move and communicate in all ways – lucid, in-the-moment, very present for her precious baby’s birth. : )
I love this Hypnobabies Tribute a Hypnobabies Dad made! 🙂
