    Default Position of baby after birth during delayed cord clamping?

    Every article I read refers to the baby being lower than the placenta for delayed cord clamping. Does anyone has information on if it still works if they are on your abdo/chest?

    I had bubs right up on my chest and he stitched me up until the cord stopped pulsing, then it was clamped, I was finished off and then DH cut it.

    I guess it depends on how long
    your cord is too?

    My 3 bubs were on my abdomen, or breast. One had a short cord, so couldn't go to the breast until the cord stopped pulsing went white, and was cut.

    My baby wouldn't have been lower than the placenta. I laid down on my side after her birth with her feeding beside me while I waited to birth the placenta.

    I was sitting on birth stool with DS in arms/on breast and placenta was in bowl under me (as far as I remember) until it stopped pulsing and DH cut the cord.
