I’m going to link to several recent posts from a pro-natural-birth doctor in India. The first one is shockingly horrid — a woman wrote the doctor saying she had been blindfolded during and after her C-section, and separated from her baby for the first full day; and then was not “allowed” to breastfeed until the third day because of the medication she was on. While I still have significant problems with much of what goes on in certain hospitals, I can at least be grateful that we don’t have this!
That post segued into two more posts on the subject: The Story Behind Successful Breastfeeding, and How to Facilitate Successful Breastfeeding. Very well worth reading, for anyone who supports and promotes natural birth and natural feeding of babies.
