I read this too. I am definitely writing this into my birth plan in big letters! Will be asking the midwife about it on my next visit. Lotus birth sounds like a great idea, not sure how practical it would be for me though.

PS I can't help but think the cord is still 'pumping' for a reason too. Wonder why it's taken them this long to research this?!

PPS this made me giggle: Otherwise, all things being equal we ought to give the tykes a few minutes to soak up what blood they can from the placenta before we cut’em off

Didn't know episiotomy was once standard practice....

I definitely want to do delayed cord clamping! I haven't discussed with my midwife yet but I can't see that she would have a problem with it

ETA - You can't donate cord blood if you delay the clamping as all the blood has gone to the baby

My doctor was a bit iffy about it until I posed this question to him.

"If he had a patient that had a no longer needed body part that would naturally die and fall off within days would he amputate it?"

...and he said he would not amputate and then he understood how, physically and medically, it was okay to Lotus Birth. I didn't even have to get into the baby receiving it's rightful dose of stem cells etc.

We're definitely doing delayed clamping (in fact I was happily surprised to know that the hospital where I have to deliver now routinely does delayed clamping!).

That's very reassuring to hear PoodleMommy. Early cord clamping has never been an evidence based practice but so often it's the norm.
