This is Soul, the first child born at Jiwa Damai. This picture is taken in Jiwa Damai at age 1 month.
The bay was born in a natural underwater birth, so called Lotus birth, where the placenta remains attached until it dries up by itself, which happened the second day after the birth. The Mom was assisted by her husband and Ibu Robin, a famous Balinese midwife.
In this picture one of our volunteers is taking care of the one month old Soul at Jiwa Damai.
Here, Margret is visiting Miquela and Soul, which had grown tremendously for age 4 months, in upstate New York.
