You just snuggle and nurse him for a while while we clean up. We’re not going anywhere.” – Midwife to mother holding her newborn just after birth, when the mother inquired when the baby needed to be weighed.

  1. This one is mine. It was my first home birth after three hospital births (two pretty good, one rather traumatic) and I was used to someone whisking the baby away for a check up before I was ready. I was able to nurse and snuggle, smell his head, pass him to my husband, take pictures, and nurse him again before I handed him over to be weighed on the bed next to me.
