I have no issues with a mama wanting to do this, but I'm not sure what the benefit would be. (Then again, it would have kept my in-laws far away . . . )
I did delayed cord clamping with my youngest. The cords of my four babies all took at least a week to fall off, so I'd imagine that this may have gotten yucky after a day or two. Are there other mammals that do this with their young? Is a lotus birth a spiritual thing? It's not something I would consider, but it's interesting. This is the first time I've heard of it.
