I have been reading what I can about lotus birth. I am finding that there isn't much information about it just the basic definition of what it is. ( Birth where the umbilical cord is not cut and placenta stays attached until naturally falls off.) I am very interested in this idea because I think the little stump that is left behind is gross I would rather have the whole thing attached lol ( weird? yeah I do better with whole organs then parts of them) The other thing that I read about it is that the child is more calm. If I am going to have a bunch of little red heads running around the calmer they are the better ha ha ha.
So anyone and everyone out there what do you think of this type of birth? Have you had a birth like this? Was the child calmer? and if you did would you do it again and why?
