“As a labor and delivery nurse, I wanted to lay the groundwork for what is happening inside the baby as it is born. It’s something to be aware of and so worthy of respect.
“And it is essential to understanding why everyone in the birthing room should respect the process and allow it to unfold naturally.
“All these wild things happen in the few moments after the first breath, and before you gaze into your baby’s eyes.
“Thus begins the golden hour after birth, and no matter what, your child needs for you to defend it.”
