I just wanted to thank you and let you know how much Peter and I really enjoyed your classes. As you know we were first time parents, and expecting twins, so had no idea of what to expect. You took time to explain my green folder notes to me each week and explained how having a C section was not something I should be scared of, but that it was something that was more likely for me because I was having twins. My breathing techniques really got me through both labour and the section in the end. But I was prepared and almost expecting it when the doctors suggested it. I would recommend your...

The Intact Birth

Two hours after birth this happy thumbsucker has been fed, held by her mother and she is ready for an exam in the presence of her family. As she is the third ...baby, the father has asked the grandmother to cut the cord before the midwife checks and weighs her.

An Intact(placenta) Birth is about using common sense and a compassionate approach to childbirth - the separation of the placenta from the baby should not be hurried and thoughtlessly performed. Immediate cord clamping is unnatural, and even more harmful when the cord is still pulsating. There are no clamps or scissors in nature. We know that waiting to cut the cord restores the baby's blood back to her from her placenta, promotes crucial bonding (keeps a mother and her baby close together), and faciliates microbiome colonization by the mother. As research advances, the reasons to have an Intact Birth becomes more imperative. The baby's blood and cord is rich with stem cells.

Even before much evidence emerged about the importance of the baby receiving all her blood, there was never a really good reason for premature clamping and cutting. Separation should be the exception rather than the rule. Even in emergency cases where babies need help, keeping the cord intact until it has stopped pulsating #waitforwhite is best thing you can do for your baby.
