An amazing caesarean birth experience has been caught on video and it had us all totally transfixed.

The Natural Parent Magazine, shared the video on their Facebook page from Angela Womb Warrior on Instagram. The clip has attracted over 52,000 views so far.

Captioned, “The first truly gentle caesarean I have seen.

It made me weep to see the original caption (music playing, strong ties between Doula and the family, so much support, mother quietly singing to her baby) and feel the connection between all involved.

I wish this was available for everyone – please mamas, changes like this are entirely consumer driven.

Know better, ask for better, set a better standard for birthing people worldwide.

Birth does not need to be clinical, rushed hard lined and full of rough handling…let’s make cesarean birth a special place because all birth deserves to be and feel beautiful for baby, mama and family too.

“This phenomenal birth facilitated & filmed by @fertilugo a OBGYN from Venezuela writes, (translated from Spanish to English), “One of the most common reasons to perform a c-section is the ‘podalica position’ (sitting or breech) which is when the baby is placed with the foot down. It is a position which, no doubt, poses serious problems for vaginal birth, but, however makes it impossible for the baby. We can see in this video a birth, respectful and careful with obstetric maneuvers, and with a vigilance that ensures the safety of the baby and the mother.

With patience, listening to the music that the parents choose for this moment, and with the support of the father and their doula, the mother can be held throughout the whole process.

After birth the baby can immediately be with his mother. Delayed cord clamping. Early attachment; in union doctor and patient can achieve a birth that is respectful.” “

What is a natural caesarean?
• It is described as a ‘natural’ approach that mimics a vaginal birth by allowing the parents to watch the birth of their child as active participants
•slow delivery with physiological autoresuscitation and
•the baby to be transferred directly onto the mother’s chest for early skin-to-skin.

Increasing evidence shows that women undergoing caesareans have a less satisfactory childbirth experience than those delivering vaginally and are more prone to postnatal depression, bonding difficulties and unsuccessful breastfeeding.

To improve the experience of women having uncomplicated caesareans, obstetric, midwifery and anaesthetic practices have evolved over the past 6 years to emulate as closely as practicable the aspects of ‘natural’ vaginal birth.

We recently shared Sarah Saunders youtube video of a “natural caesarean” which also went viral.

  • Wow ! Such beautiful images. Thank you to the Mum for sharing.
    It proves that there are times c-sections are a much safer option for the benefit of Mother and Baby. The Surgeon was able to gently straighten the baby’s legs as he slid out gently. His legs could easily have been injured ( I know a baby who was born naturally breech who had numerous surgeries because her legs and feet were so badly bent and twisted) Her Mother had so much tearing they wouldn’t tell her how many stitches she had.
