Delayed Cord Clamping
I recommend delayed cord clamping to all of my patients and I did it for my own baby as well. Delayed cord clamping has multiple benefits for the baby.
The theory behind delayed cord clamping is to allow the baby to get all of their blood back into their body and out of the placenta and umbilical cord before cutting and clamping. When the cord it clamp immediatly after birth you do not know how much of the baby's blood is in the placenta.
In my experience most doctor are completely on board with delayed cord clamping, you just have to ask!
