Academic Journal
The author offers information on new guidance to be unveiled at the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) conference in November, 2012 which recommends delaying clamping of the cord until after it has stopped pulsating—sometime between 3 and 5 minutes. This change in guidance will follow a growing number of studies highlighting the benefits of delayed cord clamping.
