The Intact Birth

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 him or her from his or her placenta promotes crucial bonding (keeps a mother and her baby close together), and facilitates microbiome colonization by the mother. As research advances, the reasons to have an Intact Birth becomes more imperative. The baby’s blood and the cord are 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

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 the best thing you can do for your baby.
