Midwifery professor in Australia: time to take a stand for DCC

Interested in a comprehensive summary of what we know regarding umbilical cord clamping? Read this piece by Hannah Dahlen, Professor of Midwifery at University of Western Sydney:
Delay clamping babies' umbilical cords for better health and development
She concludes: 'Now that we can add the evidence of longer-term benefits of delayed cord clamping to the growing list of advantages, it’s time to take a stand in Australia and move with the rest of the world in changing entrenched practice. Consumers are demanding delayed cord clamping and health providers need to respond in light of the mounting evidence of benefits to the baby.'
