my husband got escorted out of the labor room.

for following my birth plan. my birth went smooth, everything was fine. we gave the dr my birth plan and told the nurses everything off of it yet they still insisted on clamping the umbilical cord. dh would stop them every single time they tried and after the 4th time they escorted him out. which pissed my hormonal self off so I pretty much yelled at them to bring my husband back into the room and follow my god damn birth plan. all they had to do was wait 5 minutes to clamp the fucking cord. I had cps in my room the next day asking me to do a drug test. all because I wanted to wait for the cord to stop pulsing so my ds could get the last of that blood that was in the cord.

all we asked is for them to wait 5 minutes. ds was on my chest nursing, we were waiting for the placenta to be birthed still. how is that hard? honestly.

I'd report the hospital staff that was present at that moment. That's b.s.

I imagine doctors and nurses nearly pissing themselves laughing at stupid birthplans when the person that wrote them are out of earshot.


Were you on drugs?

I'm not familiar with the practice of waiting and not clamping the cord and cutting it after. Can you explain it to me? Any particular reason why you do this?

Then they are assholes who need to get the fuck over themselves. Waiting to clamp isn't going to hurt anything, but God forbid you challenge the almighty, god-like hospital staff.

I don't blame them you sound like a couple of nut jobs.
Let the medical PROFESSIONALS do their jobs. They went to school and know what they're doing .

nothing ridiculous about allowing the iron rich blood to go to the baby. it helps brain development.

you realize the only reason they started clamping immediately after birth in the 1960s was that it was believed that it reduced hemorrhaging in the mothers which was proven false but the doctors just didn't want to change the practice right?

Is your baby healthy? Are you recovering okay?

Let it go and enjoy your child.

I'm not sure about your case but I know when I had my middle child the delivery rooms were full. The nurses were spread pretty thin. Maybe they didn't have an extra 5 minutes to wait ?

it allows the baby's blood volume to increase making the transition from the womb to life smoother, increases stem cells, allows iron storage to rise to allow for better brain development and decreases the risk of anemia.
