During the birth of your baby the doctor will clamp and cut the umbilical cord. There is some new evidence that suggests waiting to cut the cord until it stops pulsating naturally is beneficial to the baby. The umbilical cord naturally stops pulsating around 2 to 5 minutes after birth. In most health births waiting these few minutes before cutting the cord will not cause any harm to your baby.
