I really want to donate mine, but our hospital doesn't participate in the donation program, and I can't figure a workaround (e.g., purchase a banking kit but then send it to the national bone marrow registry for donation).
If I can't figure this out, we've asked to keep it intact until it's stopped pulsing. I didn't know this could go on for 20 minutes, though, I thought it was more of a 4 or 5 minute thing. Interesting.
We let it almost stop pulsating. We have to clamp before completely flat so the midwife can get a small sample to check the blood type. I'm Rh- so if baby is positive, I need the rhogam shot. We haven't saved any of them so far. I'm a bit of a minimalist and don't save much of anything... Except a lock of hair from their first hair cut
