Traditional cut / delayed clamping / cord or cord-blood banking


When it comes to cutting the cord, what do you think has the most benefits?

Traditional clamp and cut,

Delayed clamping,

Cord banking

Or cord blood banking?

My OBGYN is a little old school, so he obviously supports the traditional method, but says that he knows delayed clamping/cord or cord blood banking is becoming more popular, especially in the west.

Which do you think is most beneficial? Why?

If you did delayed cord clamping, how long did you delay it?

Cord or cord blood banking, do you recommend any particular provider of the service?
