Placenta cut Adverse Baby Too Fast

Cut the umbilical cord or placenta so the baby is born, which is the current medical standards, be detrimental to the babies because they are at high risk of iron deficiency.
Labor experts and advocates minimal trauma (gentle birth) rate cutting practices placenta immediately after birth needed to be revised.
They said, let placenta stay connected with the baby for a few minutes a positive benefit because more blood is transferred to the baby. “When the baby is born, there is still a third of the blood in the umbilical cord and placenta,” said Belinda Phipps, of the National Childbirt Trust.
A study conducted by a team from the Royal College of Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (RCOG) in 2009, states that babies umbilical cord is cut immediately have lower iron levels up period of six months later.

Some hospitals are already starting to change procedures for handling deliveries. Currently also quite a lot of mothers who choose lotus birth delivery method that delaying cutting the placenta.
RCOG spokesman said, delaying cutting the placenta to the newborn is important and should be tailored to the situation.
“Research suggests delaying umbilical cord cutting more than 30 seconds will reduce the risk of anemia. This is because more time is available for the transfer of blood to the baby, especially in preterm infants,” he said.
However, there are some cases of childbirth complications that make the cuts more quickly suggested placenta. In principle, the safety is the mother and baby.
