@ Debbie

I also like how this doctor explains (at the 5:14 minute mark) delayed cord cutting and how he incorporated it into his practice.  See in the all video section Doctors Voices Stuart Fischbein Part 1 - Father Birth

Hey Debbie,

Delaying clamping and cutting the umbilical cord is thought to increase the newborn's blood volume by up to 30 per cent, by allowing the blood in the placenta to flow into the baby.

what are the benefits of waiting? I have been hearing this a lot but can't find any information on it. How long should they wait to cut it?

Nice and informative.  That's so true about the placenta & the umbilical cord.  I had no idea of the importance of not cutting it right away until my midwife informed me of the benefits.  Midwives are truly a blessing to have.

Thank you for the wonderful look into your birthing experience. I loved the side note facts. They are very helpful.

Beautiful but could you upload video of you actually pushing him out?
