What would the specific connection be for that issue? I have had panic attacks before, but I don't think I know enough about exactly how they work to understand how they would be related to early cord cutting.
Interesting question!! I never thought about cord cutting! I've wondered to myself at times if panic attacks could be rooted in a traumatic birth. It may have not been traumatic on the "outside" but maybe only for the babe entering this world. I have suffered panic attacks for years and also suspect that in my case may be in response to CIO as a child. Anyone else have any thoughts, hypothesis?

Interesting thought! Maybe the connection would be having an oxygen source cut off for a few seconds? I know I'm kinda sensitive to not having access to oxygen for even a little bit (I'll go under water in a pool, but have to take a few preparatory breaths and come up for air very often!) and hate having a blanket over my head (too stuffy, feels like there's no air)
So maybe having oxygen from the cord abruptly cut off and needing to breathe immediately is a little traumatic, but leaving the cord alone until it stops pulsing allows for a more gentle transition to breathing.
