Abstract/Description

This evidence-based research project is guided by a combination of randomized controlled trials that revealed health benefits with delayed cord clamping in newborns. Research suggests waiting 30 seconds to 3 minutes to cut the umbilical cord for the newborn to gain the health benefits from delayed cord clamping. The health benefits from delayed cord clamping include, an increase in hematocrit levels which decreases the chances of iron deficiency anemia, a decrease in hospital mortality rates, and reduces the chances of blood transfusions. The research is ongoing, but delayed cord clamping is an inexpensive intervention that can benefit newborn babies in the first few minutes of life.
