Lotus Birth

The placenta is the first friend of the child, who comes along with the child to this world. But in the modern medical system, this friend is removed before even it shows its face to the world. This cutting of umbilical cord even before the placenta is born is one of the many blunders that hospitals do. In Vedic practices, almost 2 hours later only the cord is cut. This brings about the immense health and psychological benefits to the kids.

Fits and brain seizures occur in kids when the cord is cut depriving sudden oxygen supply. Anemia and jaundice occurs more prevalently in hospital born kids because of the cord-cutting. 

30% of the child's blood will be in the placenta, so when the placenta is removed during the delivery, there is a possibility that the child will become weak. A request can be made to the doctor not to remove the placenta for at least 1 hr. This will make a huge difference in the child's health.

Here is a compilation of research news showing just delaying umblical cod for a few minutes gives huge health to the child. Please insist your doctor about it.

The value of enhanced stem cell and plasma transfusion due to delayed cord clamping with respect to immediate and long-term immunity, host defense, and repair is another important area for future research.

Click here to see medical science is now giving importance to delayed umbilical cord-cutting (By 2016 more than 214 research papers have revealed the importance of delaying umbilical cord cutting).

2020-Jan the number of papers increased to 378



Umbilical Cord Milking


Umbilical cord milking (UCM), consists of gently grasping the uncut umbilical cord and squeezing the cord from the placenta several times toward the infant. In contrast to delayed cord clamping, milking provides a placental transfusion without postponing resuscitation and can be completed as quickly as immediate cord clamping.
