    Default Caesarean and delayed cord clamping.

    I am booked for a caesarean on the 12th December and I'm really keen on having delayed cord clamping (as well as skin to skin). I've spoken to several midwives who have said its certainly possible and very beneficia, but I'm yet to mention it to my OB for fear of her trying to turn me off the idea. Does anyone have any experiences or opinions about this?

    There's research to suggest even delaying by 1 minute is beneficial! I would def chat to your ob about it, there may be hospital policies with c-section birth n I guess it depends on any risk your baby might present. Best of luck x
