    Default Delayed cord clamping. Did your midwife support your choice?

    I'm really interested in delaying cord clamping for my upcoming birth. I haven't spoken to my midwife about it yet. Just wanted to know what your experiences were and if your mw respected your wishes.

    Yes we did it, it was very easy to arrange. The midwives were more than happy to comply with our wishes, in fact, I think it may even be standard practice in our hospy

    I did delayed clamping with my youngest, even with having a placental abruption my midwife was amazingly supportive and followed my wishes in regards to That.

    Default Delayed cord clamping. Did your midwife support your choice?

    I wanted it, after all the interventions that's all I wanted!

    There was Meconium (sp?) when my waters broke and dd was showinh signs of distress so they had a medical team on standby to check dd as soon as she was born so from the moment my waters broke they said I couldn't do it

    Before that the mid wives were more than supportive
    I just didn't know before labour that certain things can mean you might be recommended against it.

    Yep, my middy encourages it. She thinks it should be standard practice (unless cirumstances don't permit).

    I had it done with DD, the midwife was very supportive and remembered I wanted it too.
    If you're interested in some amazing information about it I highly recommend this video

    Yes was highly accepted. I also read recently it gives bub up to 3 months extra iron stores when it becomes solids time! So awesome
