Woman Gives Birth in Ocean on Purpose

Josy Peukert and her husband, Benni Cornelius, lead unconventional lifestyles. They have such a strong affinity for nature that Josy decided that the best type of “free birth” for her was to deliver in the crashing waves of a beach. The New York Post reports on their unique childbirth story.

The couple moved from Germany to Nicaragua. Peukert chose the beautiful Playa Majagual as the site of her fourth childbirth.

Peukert’s first birth, which she describes as “traumatic”, took place in a clinic. The second was at home. For the third, even having a midwife present was too invasive for her. For this pregnancy, Peukert decided to have no medical interventions or even a doctor’s appointments.

When the child came to term, she and her husband, Cornelius, headed to the beach. Cornelius brought towels and a bowl to catch the placenta. Their son, Bohdi, is a healthy 7 pounds and 6 ounces.
