When you had your homebirth, did you push to get the afterbirth out, or did you just let it come out when it wanted? How long did it take? Also, did you cut the cord right away, or wait until it stopped pulsating? Did you wait to cut until the placenta was out? Did you tie off the cord, clamp it, or just leave it? I have heard that it heals just the same if you dont even tie it off...

I have every intention of letting the placenta deliver its self, when its ready. I wont want to cut the cord until then. As for clamping it, I will probably buy a birthing kit that has a sterile clamp. But I need to learn a lot more first!
