Hello ladies! congrats on your pregnancies! I am almost 4 months...and already seeing a midwife, planning a water birth at my house in May! I am interested in doing a lotus birth (umbilical non severance) and also not giving the baby his/her first bath until the vernix has been absorbed into its skin. I love all things natural and alternative to western thought.....my question is, aside from umbilical non severance and not washing the vernix off of the baby - what other practices in natural/holistic birth are there? anything else you can add?
thanks a lot and congrats again (-:
