I was planning on donating the cord blood, but I wonder if C-Section moms can delay clamping? Any experience anyone?

I've never heard of encapsulation, and don't think I will do that. We are def. delaying cord clamping though!

I have requested that I have delayed cord clamping and my midwife is great with that, in fact I may just leave the cord attatched to baby until the placenta it is delivered, I don't think she'll care at all. However there is a certain level of gross to the encapsulation and even as a doula I can't bring myself to it... I know animals do it, and I know it is beneficial and even recommend it to my clients, I just can't do it myself.
Here is an article I loved about delayed cord clamping.

oh and Amber- you should absolutely talk to your doctor about delayed clamping, it is possible during c-section but it just depends on the nature of your doctor on whether you get it, you should also bring up skin to skin contact with him/her... that is also something they can allow during c-sections now, but not many doctors are in the habit of doing it because they usually whisk baby off to check vitals, all those things can be done right there on your chest so long as baby looks good, so even with a c-section there is no reason for you and baby to be seperated at all... I'd ask how willing your doctor is to looking into giving you that option.

I want to talk to my doctor about delayed cord clamping to see if he's on board with it prior to delivery. Hoping he is so there wont be any issues.

I'm passing on consuming the placenta...
