How many pregnancy tests did you take to prove to yourself that you were indeed expecting a little one? With my first pregnancy, it was more than half a dozen. With my second pregnancy, one positive test and a horrible bought of nausea was enough for me! How about you?

There has been an increasing number of studies published with regards to the timing of cord clamping, including a 16-month study which was published in 2006. It was conducted at Hospital de Gineco Obstetrica in Mexico City, where over 350 mother/baby pairs were part of the study.
This study, consistently with many others, has provided solid evidence of the benefits of delayed clamping. The main benefits being:
Increased levels of iron
Lower risk of anaemia
Fewer transfusions, and
Fewer incidences of intraventricular hemorrhage.
