Delayed Cord Clamping

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Delayed cord clamping (DCC) is recommended for premature infants to improve blood volume. Most preterm infants are born by cesarean delivery (CD), and placental transfusion may be less effective than in vaginal delivery (VD). We sought to determine whether infants <32 weeks born by CD who undergo umbilical cord milking (UCM) […]

The two groups were statistically identical in gestational age, head circumference, health and age of the mother, and other characteristics.” Click Here to view the rest of […]

Early Clamping of The Umbilical Cord May Interrupt Humankind’s First ‘Natural Stem Cell Transplant’. The timing of umbilical cord clamping at birth should be delayed just a few minutes longer, suggest researchers at the University of South Florida’s Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair.
