Delayed Cord Clamping

Eric and I decided to delay clamping and cutting Jackson's umbilical cord at birth until the cord stopped pulsating. After reading numerous books and online articles, and speaking with my doctor, it was a simple choice. Here are a few articles to read if you are interested in the benefits of delayed cord clamping for future children:
