"My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness." -- Dalai Lama
This is a revision of the short that was originally done for the Birth Matters Virginia contest in May, 2009. We Can Be Much Kinder is also a chapter in the film, The Other Side of the Glass and expands upon this video short.
This short is about the importance of leaving the mother and baby intact -- cord intact -- until the mother feels she and baby are ready to be separated.
This film has brief images of a woman's breast and nipple as she is with her newborn baby as his cord is cut and as he crawls to the breast to self-attachment. This process, called Self-Attachment and/or Breast Crawl is becoming known now as a very critical part of human development that has been disrupted by modern, medicalized birth.
