Many of us have talked about this.  Maybe you had it on your birth plan.  Maybe you have heard about waiting to clamp the cord after birth.  You’ve probably heard that it’s supposed to be good for the baby, but have you ever really heard why?  Take a look at this great TED talk from Dr Greene.  It will change your perspective, raise your awareness, and increase the confidence you have in your body.  Wow, you are amazing Mama and unnecessary intervention may be robbing your baby of some essentials that your complex and awe-inspiring womb can provide to your precious little one.  leave your comments below and pass the info along.
