Oh yea! We delayed it with two out of the three of our kids and we will be with this one. Our second had meconium and had to come out right away.

I didn't know about it with my kiddos, but, if I have any more, I will definitely be delaying cord cutting/clamping and also natural delivery of placenta.

 I wasn't going to write up a birth plan, but since I have this as one of my requests, I ended up writing one out.  That way they'll have no excuse for not knowing that I want them to delay cutting the cord.  : )

Keep in mind that they might not refer to it when labor happens / after the delivery...

You can remind them and it still may not be honored.    Have an advocate there with you to ensure your wishes are respected~
