  • My sons father cut his, but i felt it. Not what you would imagine. It was thick and a little rubbery, which is so that it won't easily get tangled and squished. I also smelled my baby. There was this soft warm smell. Ahhhhhh, the gift of birth.

  • I did my Goddaughter Tayla's.... her dad left her Mom when she was only 3 months pregnant. Tayla has a brother who turned 1 year old 12days after her birth. I was so sad for them I couldn't even enjoy the birth. I have no siblings so it was a once in a lifetime thing for me with my friend. I envy the homebirths who cut their own kids cord

  • I cut my nephew Ryans. My little sis was 16 when she had him and he weighed over 9lbs. Watching him come out was the scariest whing I've ever saw! lol
