AMAZING BIRTH OF A BABY CHIMP

This is so awesome to watch. The mama chimp actually goes upside down in certain moments to help her baby get out. She gets into numerous positions, and has a midwife right there supporting the birth. Notice also that mama leaves the umbilical cord attached to the baby and the placenta. According to the facebook fan page "Leaving A Baby's Umbilical Cord To Stop Pulsating (Delayed Cord Clamping)"

"...Lotus-birth pioneer Clair Lotus Day [says that] a chimp mother carries her baby's placenta until separation.
* The `midwife/doula´ on this video is the baby´s grandmother ♥ "
