The Cord and the Strength of Life: Something Extraordinary
I have observed babies being birthed with the placenta detached and following right behind them for over 20 years.Throughout that time I have kept mental notes, observing, recording, pondering. Then one day, finally, it all added up. The explanation is a short umbilical cord, a phenomenon that requires us to allow time for the baby, the cord and the placenta to descend slowly through the birth canal, in the wisdom of nature, for a healthy and natural birth.
