It took just a few minutes for the placenta to deliver. Maybe 5 or 10 minutes? It was quite a bit less than with Cameron and his took 20 minutes.

I'd wait however long it took as long as the midwife didn't think there was a problem. It can take over an hour.

We didn't cut the cord until about an hour after Fritz was born. We just never got around to it. At that point it was getting in the way so I cut it.
