To clamp now or later?

I just wanted to share with you this blog post that I found today, which discusses the issue of immediate cord clamping vs delayed cord clamping.

As you know I am a big fan of not ‘clamping’ at all, and when I think of this question, I am reminded of all that rich beautiful blood my son missed out on due to his cesarean birth.

This post suggests that just because it is the way we have been taught, it doesn’t mean it is the right way to do things, or even the best option.

I like that kind of thinking
