We Can Be Much Kinder

About the importance of delayed cord clamping and uninterrupted bonding between mom and baby immediately after birth.

We Can Be Much Kinder from The Other Side of the Glass on Vimeo.


  1. Love this video. After having 3 homebirths and watching dozens, probably hundreds, of gentle birth videos, it always shocks and sickens me to see the way many hospital-born babies are so cruelly assaulted in the name of "medical care."

  2. The most peaceful birth I have seen is one with a midwife at the hospital. She didn't clamp the cord and gave the baby right to mom for a long time. It was amazing at how much of a difference that made.
