Vaginal Seeding - Should I swab my baby?

Maddies - posted on 11/03/2018 ( 1 mom has responded )




I've heard about vaginal seeding for c-section babies - where the mom's vagina is swabbed and those fluids are put on the baby's face & skin. I'm most likely going to have to have a c-section (all my female relatives have had one) and want to know if I should swab my newborn?
Has anyone had experience with this? What if the doctors don't offer this to me in hospital?

Thank you in advance!
