Stage 4 of Birth
with Karlton Terry
Interesting and easy to understand and relate to, aspects of the menagerie of events, influences, and consequences from the pre & perinatal world.

Stage Four of birth, known as the primal bonding window, occurs when the baby’s body is finally born. It is signified by a few general traumas, particularly if the birth has occurred in a hospital: premature cutting of the cord; prevention of maternal bonding and isolation; and interventions involving manipulation or invasion (weighing, scrubbing, suction, heel pricks, etc.). Stage Four is an interesting stage, different from the other birth stages, because there is likely to be some coherence between the stories, as told by baby body language, and the parents’ story about the birth.
Unlike the preceding stages, where most parents can only guess what was going on, one or both parents usually witness the baby and its circumstances during Stage Four.
