Actress Jennica Garcia gave birth to her second daughter with Alwyn Uytingco on Monday, June 25.
Earlier today, the celebrity mom took to Instagram to chronicle the “birth story” of her bundle of joy. Here, she revealed that she gave birth to baby Athena Mori via Full Lotus Birth.
“I am so excited to share the Birth Story of our second child with you, but for now, I hope this will do…. Meet our little angel and her sister, placenta. They are on their third day together now. #FullLotusBirth”
In case you’re not familiar with Full Lotus Birth, according to the website Pregnancy Birth & Beyond, this is “the practice wherein the umbilical cord is left uncut so that the newborn baby remains attached to his or her placenta until the cord naturally separates with the umbilicus.” This usually takes three to 10 days after birth.
