The moment when you reach down and your baby is RIGHT THERE!
Being the first person to hold your new babe: priceless. This babe is so cute — fresh and new and covered in vernix caseosa. According to Healthline, vernix caseosa, “is a protective layer on your babyâ€™s skin. It appears as a white, cheese-like substance. This coating develops on the babyâ€™s skin while in the womb. Traces of the substance may appear on skin after birth.” The practice used to be to wash this coating off when the baby was born, before wrapping him up and passing him to mom.
