This is something that is discussed in Hypnobabies class.  What are the pros and cons?  Why should we do this?  But my care provider says they won't do it?  These are common questions I hear from my students and from the Hypnobabies Yahoo Group.

I usually suggest they do their own research and share with their care provider.  What often happens is they are so used to their routines that even if they agree to it, if it isn't their standard of care they forget in the moment. 

SO, if this is important to you find a care provider that does it all the time or REMIND your care provider while you are pushing!  (make that dad's job) 

Here is a great post by a L&D nurse about Delayed Cord Clamping, with great resources to check out.  

Another great place to go is Sarah Buckley has written a great article about Third Stage.
