This video is totally blowing our minds. Last year, British mom-to-be Sarah Saunders uploaded a video of herself to YouTube in which she gave via “natural Cesarean”
The groundbreaking delivery procedure works like this: the doctor makes an incision into the womb and assists the baby by bringing out its head, but then lets the infant force its shoulders and body out on its own, in a way that mimics a natural birth. The process also allows for more of an initial bonding time for mom and baby because babies born through natural Cesarean are able to spend up to four minutes with their mother immediately after birth.
“I wanted to share this video to show that if you are unable to give birth ‘naturally’ that having a natural cesarean is the next best thing!” wrote Saunders in the caption.
