A Lotus Birth is the practice of leaving the placenta attached to the baby until the umbilical cord naturally separates. This is a wonderful ritual not just for the numerous benefits to your baby but for the spiritual and the graceful transition into life with a smooth and calm pace for your baby.
The gentleness of a Lotus Birth is also a wonderful way for mum, baby, daddy and any siblings to create a closer unity as the separation of the cord allows everyone to slow down and indulge in the bonding experience with the new baby. This is sometimes called a Baby Moon.
If you are planning to have a Lotus Birth, the most important thing is to keep the placenta dry and well looked after during the days that it is still attached to baby. Nourishing Mama Lotus Birth Herbs have been specially blended to provide you with the anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties you need to look after the placenta while keeping it wonderfully clean and aromatic.
