What Would Your Baby Choose?

Did You Know?
If cord clamping is done immediately, baby stops receiving life giving oxygen via the umbilical cord and will be deprived of 20 to 60% of additional blood volume. Waiting to cut the cord for several minutes allows baby to receive many maternal antibodies, additional stem cells, hormones, and vitamin K. Loss of this volume of blood is equivalent of "subjecting an infant to a massive hemorrhage. Current research suggests that the cord should be left entirely undisturbed for a minimum of 4-5 minutes."
