Yes, we had delayed clamping and cutting with both of my sons.

I did it with my VBAC to the point they didn't clamp or cut it until I delivered the placenta which is truly the best way to make sure all the blood gets back to the baby

Absolutely! My son's cord was cut once the placenta came out, about 10-ish minutes after birth.

I never knew about this either but now that I do, i will inform the Parents.

They can even do a modified deplayed clamping during a c-section too.

We waited with #2 and will with any other future babies. Didn't cut until placenta was out.
