Cord Blood & Delayed Cord Clamping
Myth: If you choose to delay cord clamping, you no longer have the option to collect cord blood.
Fact: Cord blood collection begins immediately after the cord is clamped and cut –whenever that may be. Timing is determined by you and your OB or midwife. If you do delay clamping, be sure to collect as much of the remaining cord blood as possible.
At ViaCord if a cord blood sample doesn’t reach a minimum threshold, you’ll be notified and you can decide to continue storing or not.
