DELIVERY SELF ATTACHMENT
With Lennart Righard, MD
and Kittie Frantz, RN, CPNP-PC
This video depicts a newborn's ability at birth to crawl up to a breast and attach himself unassisted.
Dr. Righard's study published with midwife, Margaret Alade, in The Lancet looked at two groups of babies, one group was unmedicated and within 50 minutes, most infants self-attached! This six-minute video will change your protocols!
A must for hospital staff inservice. A wonderful adjunct for Training LDRP units. Childbirth classes have had unprecidented success with this video. It causes parents to seriously consider their birth options.
