The umbilical cord stump might look large and odd but it will quickly dry out and shrivel up. The umbilical cord stump will fall off approximately when your baby is between 14-21 days.

The rest of your umbilical cord will be attached to your placenta. Your placenta will be delivered about 15-45 minutes after the birth of your baby. The doctor will examine your placenta and remaining umbilical cord. The placenta and umbilical cord will be disposed of.
