I am wondering what you ladies are planning to do (or have done in the past) when it comes to cutting the umbilical cord?
I am definitely going to wait and cut the cord after pulsation has completely stopped, even longer if I feel it. DP wants to cut it with a knife of his that is ALWAYS on his person and will be with him for the rest of his life. I was all for it until I watched this video.....
Which is amazing and beautiful and you should all watch it (if you're into that sort of thing). But they do a cord burning! Looks beautiful. I looked into it and found some interesting things about it, including that this process usually results in the cord falling off within 3 days! (http://www.cordburning.com/faq.html)
Don't know if it's something DP will be into, but it's something to think about!
Anyhow, what are all of you doing for cord cutting? Anyone going to eat or encapsulate their placentas?
