Reclaim your power: inspiration and reflections for pregnancy, childbirth and beyond
Falling in love...
Show Notes

In this episode I reflect on what happens in the third stage of birth with the delivery of the placenta and the cutting of the umbilical cord.  We dont often think about or pay too much attention to these processes because once our baby's born we are too caught up in the joy and awe of this moment, fair enough! However, what happens during this stage and how it is handled is important to both the baby and mother's well being and is worth paying attention to.
