TC 018 Delayed and optimal cord clamping: For your newborn’s long term health
Waiting to clamp your baby’s cord is not a delay, it is appropriate care.
We often hear about the importance of making and having choices in birth. But sometimes we are unaware that there is even a choice to make. In this episode we are talking about a choice that some moms may not think about if it’s not highlighted.
We are talking about delayed and optimal cord clamping.
Hannah Tizard is a student midwife and founder of the Blood To Baby campaign which is bringing global awareness to the need for baby to have all it’s blood.
In this episode you learn:
- What is optimal vs. delayed cord clamping
- What does the umbilical cord do
- How the timing of clamping impacts your newborn’s long term health
- Why you need to have a plan

Were you rushed to clamp after your baby was born?
“We must be very clear. This blood is not CORD blood, it is BABY blood. When we ask mothers to give away cord blood, they are under an illusion. This blood belongs to the BABY, not the umbilical cord.” – Robin Lim
