 I thought about it.. but i decided not to do it... we won't cut the cord until it stops pulsating so he can get the blood he needs then.

 That's exactly what I was going to type, lol.

Blood is intended for the baby for important health reasons.   

:-)

I prefer preventing illness before having it to treat, kwim?

We can't afford that. I'm learning more about this pulsating thingy and just might see if my ob will follow that.

No, we delay cord clamping so the baby gets all of his own cord blood at birth.

I have decided not to do it after they did a feature story on ABC News....it is expensive and you may or may not be able to use the cord blood for your child's ailment, disease, or disorder. I plan on donating our cord blood to a public bank which are available to everyone for treatment at anytime.

Exactly.

The chances are pretty slim. We won't be donating it though. That blood belongs to my baby, so we will delay the clamping/cutting until it stops pulsing.

Okay, i have heard a lot of people talking about this but I never knew why. So if you wait for it to stop pulsating they baby gets all of the cord blood and that helps to prevent illness??
