I know is probably a frequent topic, but I have a pretty specific question. I'm torn between delayed cord clamping and cord blood donation. Do I have to be, though? Is it possible to do both? If I have to choose between one or the other, I will choose delayed clamping. No area for debate there. I would really like to be able to do both, though.

I've read that some wait 2-3 minutes (or longer) after birth to cut the cord so that the baby can receive the store of iron. After this short time has passed, is there enough blood left to be donated? Can the rest of the biological stuff be donated to a good cause, or will it already be degrading? I realize nobody may know the answer Any information would be welcomed!

My friend did both, so I'm hoping to too. Maybe it depends on the skill or patience of the practitioner? I hope mine can do it...I am going to ask at my next appt.
