Article on delayed cord clamping


Thought some of you might find this interesting. Waiting until the cord had stopped pulsating was one of the things on our birth plan last time.

PS I know it is a bit early to be thinking about births (shudder) etc but if I don't post this now I'll forget!!


  • Good article. I think I might consider this as no 2 had difficulty breastfeeding after the birth as he was too tired. This might help if the situation occurs again x x
  • i will be doing this, i also didnt have my hubby cut the cord as it kinda grosses me out.

    i never really understood why they did it so fast anyway, if it doesnt 'need' to be done then i think we'll delay it and see how it goes.
