Why is delayed (or optimal) cord clamping recommended?

The benefits of delayed cord clamping include:

  • increased iron levels in the baby even up until they are six months old, which helps with growth and both physical and emotional development
  • increased amount of stem cells, which helps with your baby’s growth and helps with their immune system.

There is also some research that suggests that delayed cord clamping can improve the health of premature babies.
