I had about a 5 minute wait between birth and placenta delivery with my first 2. With my last, the placenta took 45 minutes to deliver. I have read that it is common with precipitous (fast) birth for your placenta to take longer. I guess its sort of in shock from the speed of delivery.

Never never never let anyone yank on the cord. Ever.

Thank you BAM for my signature!!
