Cord clamping: Do you know everything you should??
Delayed cord clamping IS best
Delayed Cord Clamping | A blog post, with cited sources, explaining why it's valuable NOT to clamp the umbilical cord immediately. Specifically because there is still blood in the placenta that the cord needs 3 minutes after birth to transfer back to the baby, and then it clamps itself through natural processes. This gives the baby more blood and therefore more oxygen, to the baby's benefit if allowed.
