Quoting Spacetits:" Yeah, I know. :lol: I delayed both of my kids clamping. They never did that before, one of the OBs laughed at my friend when she requested it."

oh lol, I thought you were saying it like it was a bad thing.. damn emotionless words :-P



That's insane! I had both boys delayed. This time it will be so delayed, They wait till you are getting ready to deliver the placenta. Oh and I get to hold him (if I want) while I deliver the placenta. I can hang out in the water with him as long as I want. They stay here for 4 hours after he is born and don't weigh or anything (unless there is a problem) until they are getting ready to walk out of the door. They let us bond with him and try to nurse him during those 4 hours, So Joe and the boys will have him while i'm getting cleaned up, then I go to my bed while the midwives clean everything up and make me a meal :-)

I rushed everything, I just wanted out of the hospital. Their policy is 24 hours, but every time a nurse came in I was like "I want out of here. Get me a doctor, we're fine." :lol: So I stayed in the hospital for 9 hours? give or take. I had her at 6pm.
