New Research On Cutting The Cord, And Some Cool Pictures Too | Being Pregnant

New Research On Cutting The Cord, And Some Cool Pictures Too | Being Pregnant.

Great post, with links, about the benefits of delaying clamping the umbilical cord after birth.  If you only have a few minutes and are unable to read the entire article, be sure to check out the pictures.  The difference in the immediately-after-birth cord and fifteen-minutes-later cord is HUGE!

If you are interested in delaying the cord cutting after your child’s birth, be sure to speak with your care provider *before* labor begins.  Many physicians (and even some midwives) routinely cut the cord almost immediately after baby is born.  Sometimes, a little advanced notice of your wishes are all it takes to make them a reality!
