Delayed cord clamping

I have been doing the research but would like to see if anyone here has done this with a past c-section birth?? If you have, how long was the delay? Can you give me more details?????? I'm seriously considering this for my c section but I do know that once the uterus is cut open it doesn't contract like a vaginal birth would so the amount of time for the blood to get pumped to the baby is quite different. Did that make sense??

I'm not sure about C-sections.. my research has shown that it is really only beneficial when the baby is premature.. otherwise it's pretty equivalent. That's about all I have looked into. Don't know if that will help you or not though.

Ahh your sweet for not letting me hang. Yeah, I'm looking for someone who may have done this with their c-sections.

Just an update if anyone cares..... My doctor does do it often with c-section births so we get to do it this time until the cord stops pulsating!!! Thus us very exciting news.

Yes, many OBs will do delayed cord clamping during a c/s.

The contraction of the uterus does not move blood into the baby. The pulsation in the cord comes from the baby's heart beat sending deoxygenated blood to the placenta. Oxygenated blood returns passively through the umbilical vein to the baby. When the cord stops pulsing it's because the vessels in the cord have spasmed/constricted in response to contact with air and temperature change.
