I’m actually not so worried about the pain of delivering a child but is
delivering the placenta painful? That worries me the most. I plan on having
a home water birth for my first child is this unwise?

sultansempire says:

when do you think an umbilical cord should be cut? should it be cut when it
stops pulsing? how long can that take up too? is there any advantages from

at least there are no bones in the placenta.

@tamemeifyoucan . Delivering a baby is actually mor epainful then the
placenta. You just feel something “ooze” out… Does not hurt at all…. :-)

I see there are no other comments here, so I thought I’d leave something.
I’m leaning heavily toward and unassissted home birth with my next (3rd)
child, and found this video very helpful and informative. A lot of the
material I’ve seen focuses mainly on the birth of the baby and leaves out
delivery of the placenta. So thank you for posting this!

@poplamasiv They probably gave you Pitocin which is the synthetic version
of a natural hormone called Oxytocin. Oxytocin is released when the mother
breastfeeds; so if you just breastfeed your baby your body releases that
drug naturally, and prompts contractions for the placenta to be birthed.

but as soon as i gave birth the lady gave me n injection n she said this
