I really really want a waterbirth, it just seems so much better to me in every way, so hoping I can have one at the maternity unit. I also really want to have skin to skin with baby right away, and allow for him to do a "breast crawl" where he himself will instinctively search for the breast and suckle and latch on, as letting the baby initiate this is supposed to be the best way for baby to start breastfeeding. I just recently realised that it might not be that easy to do both. I want to stay in the water until the placenta is delivered, and then have the cord cut after that, so I would have to wait for that before I could get out of the water to lie down to allow for baby to feed.. so just wondering how that can work out in the best way possible? Does anyone know if the delay of waiting for the placenta might be negative in any way for the baby in consideration to breast feeding? In the video I watched about breast crawl a part of it was that the baby kicking towards your bay to move to the breast would be helpful in delivering the placenta, so it seems like that is kind of supposed to happen around the same time, and not one after the other.. I might be over thinking this and I might end up with a c-section for all I know, but would like to know if anyone have any input on this?
