The Magical Hour Following Birth

Newborns go through nine distinct phases of awakening following their birth. In observing newborns in a variety of birthing scenarios, whether natural vaginal spontaneous birth, or birth with forceps or vacuum, or cesarean birth, each baby went through these stages. At any point, if they were removed from their mother’s chest before the stages had been completed and then replaced, they would begin at the very first phase (crying) and follow the stages through suckling and sleep. Please be aware that your baby NEEDS this very important adjustment period following birth.
