Interesting new film about the effect of childbirth practices on newborn babies. It’s pretty extreme stuff, but I think there is a lot of truth to it. We need to question the way babies are treated right after birth. It makes sense that those first few moments are really important, and the panic mode of a hospital birthing room right after the birth is not calming or peaceful. The baby is also poked, prodded, gooped up and jostled immediately after birth. I love that midwives but the baby directly on the breast immediately after the birth. This seems to crucial to me for bonding.
I do wish they had featured some partners who weren’t men in the film, but it’s not surprising they didn’t. Sigh.
