Re: Tell me about delayed cord cutting

Many benefits have already been stated so I will just share my experience. With my DS, born in a hospital it was maybe 10 minuutes or less. He had a nuchal cord and was a bit blue. Hospital staff wanted to clamp, cut and take him. I threw a fit. Instead he had some supplemental oxygen given to him while he lay on my chest. After that, he was perfectly fine and he was able to get more of his blood volume, plus oxygen from the placenta which hadn't been delivered yet.
dd was born at home, cord continued pulsing a good 20 minutes or so after it was delivered.my midwife wrapped the placenta up in a chux pad and put it next to me while I nursed DD, then the cord was finally clamped and cut. DD had no jaundice. DS had quite a bit of jaundice.
