I've immersed myself in birth stories since my BFP and I've noticed such a common occurence that I never really paid much attention to before, but.... I notice in videos and in birth stories that MWs really pull on the baby once the head is out and then I see them grabbing/pulling the placenta too.....
I don't like that much, why are they getting so hands on? We're perfectly capable of letting our bodies expel baby and placenta, what is such the rush with pulling baby and placenta out?
This is one of those things I am notating to speak to the MW about. I don't want to be touched unless I ask, I want to allow my body to do it's own thing.
