I feel like this image displays the differences so well! So simple but it intrigues people to read up on it, I think!

Great article! The science is clear that delayed cord-clamping is so important for the baby! This is one of my favorite articles on the topic - Science & Sensibility » Common Objections to Delayed Cord Clamping – What’s The Evidence Say?

I always thought delayed cord clamping was literally waiting a few minutes, but then I also heard its like waiting 30 minutes to hours, is that true??

Most of the time, delayed cord clamping is a few minutes to 10 minutes. Some women like to wait, if their care provider allows them, for the cord to stop pulsing.
I have never heard of waiting that long!

Each mom/baby is different. The average is 10-15 minutes, but in some cases it stops within 2-4minutes, and with others it can take 30-45 minutes. There is no "right" way, it's just a matter of each person's unique body

I think it's important to remember that if the cord has truly stopped pulsating, clamping is just something we do before cutting it. There's no time limit, unless the Dr/Midwife is in a hurry. Some people even leave the cord attached to the placenta until it falls off naturally (lotus birth), which can take days.

I prefer to always delay cord clamping, too.

I love this. This is a great and very important conversation to have. I am a firm believer that the baby should have the benefits of the blood from the placenta immediately. I also see a healthier 3rd stage in moms who delay clamping until the cord has completed pulsating.

I think mine took about 15 minutes to stop pulsating? It's the standard practice at my birth center.
