    I found once they'd done their apgar checks etc.. they left the room.. and we had all the time in the world. I'm sure they can do the apgars with bub on your chest like that.



    They came back in about an hour or so (think they were flat out.. lots of babies that night LOL) and weighed him then. So there would have been time for it for us. Am keeping this in mind for this bub I can tell you!

    Incredible. I am almost 32 weeks along and had been looking for information on this - to see it in action is just amazing. I spoke to the midwife at my hospital yesterday about this and she said if the baby is fine and doesn't need any assistance then there is no reason why we can't do this. It is one of the big things on my birth plan (and before this I never realised I wanted a birth plan).

    Thank you so much for sharing this link with us.

    Just watched it I can't believe how beautiful that was... that's one of the most beautiful videos i have ever seen I would have to say! It was interesting to see how closely the bub gripped onto the mothers breast wasn't it? Held on very, very tightly...

    I'm not sure if I would be able to do that in front of all those ppl standing watching me!

    I'm going to remember this video for when i hopefully b/feed one day....

    That is great - I wll get my DH to study it so he can be my very own breast-crawl assistant. I will hopehully be birthing at the birth centre at the Mercy so hopefully the midwives there will be onto it.

    You have to let them know what you want Aurora, they pretty much let you do your own thing but some do the whole grab the breast, shove it in thing. But like I say, you have some time to do your own thing, just let them know you want to have some time to allow the baby to attach to the breast on it's own and will ask for help if you need it.

    It's amazing isn't it. Our midwife was all for this, she gave us heaps of information on this & highly recommended it. She too said tell the hospital you plan to do this, often they will ask you about your birth plan - they should go with what you want.
    I told lots of people about the "breast crawl" and many thought it was a little weird, but if they watched that they think a bit differently I think.
    Unfortunately for us things didn't go to plan & Charlie was distressed & taken away for oxygen etc right after he was born we will definately be doing this second time around, if possible.

    that is amazing.
    Makes me sad about my birth now, i still had my normal clothes on so no skin to skin post delivery and the midwife just threw the baby quite abruptly on my breast in the football hold she had my breast in one had and bubs head in the other....

    I wish it had happened like this.

    Makes me want to lay down with my baby now!!

    Thats amazing... thanks for sharing

    Yes sad isn't it, what we are being robbed of. Things have certainly gotten lost along the way. We need to go back to one-on-one, midwfery led care! Not specialist care, unless it warrants it...

    Don't forget to vote for it in the Oz in 30 Seconds Political Ad comp - see another thread in this forum!

    I have seen another video like this in the baby classes and I was just in aw.

    As soon as I saw it I was like yep I want that!!

    we where told though that having drugs during labour can make baby tired and less likely to self attach, but in saying that that you could actually try this tecnique for a few weeks following birth if you had attachment issues.

    It would be great if someone else could give some info on this. The video we watched was part of an american study done only a few years ago. where they filmed mum and bubs that had intervention and didn't have intervention.

    Drugs or not I'm willing to give it a try

    OMG - that is just amazing! I have never seen anything like it before! Isn't it amazing how easily everything happens all by itself! It really makes me realise just how much we really do mess with nature IYKWIM.
