Who cut the baby's cord?

Dh? Mine wasn't allowed to the first time due to a c-sec but the 2nd time around he did. It was quite thick lol

  • On my daughter, the cord was around her neck when I went into a contraction. The doctor tried to get the cord up and over but the contraction stressed the cord and it snapped at her belly button. All of a sudden a team of docs and nurses came out of the woodwork. So no one cut her cord.

    With my son, the OB cut it.

  • My mom did. My husband about passed out when the doc asked him if he wanted to cut the cord. LMAO!

  • DH cut it. I almost passed out/threw up when he did because of the sound lol. He was perfectly fine, though (which really surprised me).

  • The first time the OB cut it (they'd had to call the NICU team in and were just trying to get him out), the 2nd and 3rd times my exhusband cut the cord. My 4th and 5th were csections so the OB did it.

  • My finace is worried about passing out during the labor process, I don't know if he could handle cutting the cord, and nor do I. haha So I am predicting the OB will.
