Just delivered a daughter & blood after cord cutting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi
I just delivered my daughter. I'll write a longer story later.
I have a quick question about cord cutting

I clamped n cut the cord but I see a little bit of blood coming out from the cutting. What can I do?
It's more of a smear than a flow.

Thx in advance

If you wipe away the smear of blood--does it reappear?  If so, the first tie/clamp may not have been tight enough and you should tie/clamp it again.  If the smear isn't getting bigger/actively bleeding now, just leave it alone.

Yes, there will be a little fresh blood at the end but like the pp said, if you wipe it away a little vigorously, it shouldn't reappear.
