At births done at home, we recognize the importance of allowing baby it get all of their blood through the cord. At most births, the cord is not cut until after the delivery of the placenta.

It is encouraging to see that the medical community is starting to find benefits to delayed cord clamping (even if it is less than a minute) for preemies. I just wonder when they will catch on for the full term babies.
