The Baby Chronicles: 29 weeks 1 day..the natural caesar!

Ok… lots of debate and comments(16) surrounding last weeks post concerning circumcision (HERE)…seriously go look..some people wrote entire essays..not gonna say much since baby momma is cool with whatever but i am gonna give my favourite 2 comments.Case against chopping his manliness: “19th century doctors thought that :
a) masturbation caused various physical and mental problems (including epilepsy, convulsions, paralysis, tuberculosis etc), and
b) circumcision stopped masturbation.” Mark Lyndon.

Love your thinking Mark.Makes complete sense that silly antiquated reasons still dictate our decisions today.The case for circumcision is most succinctly offered by Maha who had this to say :”I think the trauma lies on the parents more than on the baby… snip it, much sexier for future play dates. Future wife will thank you!”

Ok now onto the good stuff.As all you avid readers of the baby chronicles will know, the momma has had some difficulty deciding on having a natural delivery or a ceasarean section.As fate would have it, a new procedure is available in South Africa and the moment she heard about it,she immediately showed massive interest.Its called a natural ceasar and here are the fundamental points:

1: The c-section is booked for the same day as the due date.ie not 1 to 2 weeks prior.To allow the mom to go into labour if she so choses and to release labour induced endorphins that boosts the babies immunity.

2:Momma recieves local anaesthesia so she that she can be awake and be a part of all the proceedings.The lights are dimmed down and the room temperature is increased and music can be played to limit the cold sterile environment assocaited with a major operation.

3:The delivery doctor uses hand movements to compress the baby while removing him to simulate the conditions of a vaginal birth and also clear the the amniotic fluid out of the baby’s nose eliminating the need for suctioning.

4:The umbilical cord is not cut immediately.This means that the baby still recieves oxygen via the cord while it tries to breath.Only once the baby breathes on its own is the cord cut.

5:The baby is not taken away..instead the baby is IMMEDIATELY placed skin-to-skin on the mothers chest and covered.”The mother can see,smell,touch,hold and even offer her baby her breast within seconds of the birth.

For more info on this technique go HERE.Let me know how you feel about this option.
