It's also stressful for the mothers.

My kids were all born at home with naturopathic doctors at my side. They will tell you that what the article is about is absolutely true. Any mother knows this instinctually. Doctors should listen!

J needed to hold my son, but they were "observing" him for issues, and it was really difficult to wait.
