Supporting the baby in this way, we lift the little body up, as if pulling someone out of the well. We never touch the head. And we settle the child immediately on its mother's belly. What better place could there be? Her belly has the infant's exact shape and dimensions. Swelling a moment before, hollow now, the belly seems to lie there waiting, like a nest.
