- Have you heard about 'delayed cord clamping'?
Increasing amounts of research are suggesting there are many benefits to your new baby by delaying the clamping of the cord between three and five minutes.
These include your baby receiving 30% more blood and 50% more red blood cells from the placenta before it is removed, which reduces the chances of anaemia.
There are benefits for you too, including lowering the chances of suffering from haemorrhage after birth or a retained placenta.
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) are changing their guidelines from November 2012 so that delayed cord clamping will become the common and preferred practice, so do discuss it with your midwife and consider putting it on your birth plan.
- Your baby's movements in pregnancy
Depending upon how advanced your pregnancy is, you will be used to your midwife asking about your baby's movements. The reason for this is they show well being. The Royal College of Obstetricians (RCOG) have recently published information and advice for all mums-to-be about their unborn baby's movements in pregnancy. It's available to read or download here.
- Seasonal vaccinations
