Early v Delayed Cord Clamping

Posted on: June 2, 2009

Following a posting of mine about Lotus Birth http://www.midwifevalerie.wordpress.com/2008/12/04/lotus-birth/

There have been some interesting items posted recently about delayed cord cutting;  whilst I am not going to say that most babies whose cords were cut early were in danger, I do feel that the ideas expressed merit serious consideration, particularly for premature babies.  I think that the medical professional should reconsider the practice of early cord clamping.  Why is it being done?  I think the argument of expediency stands up!
