I am scheduled for a C tomorrow because my baby is (has been all along) breech and I'm post-due.

For both my DDs, DH was allowed to cut the cord....AFTER the OB cut it first. My OB cut it long, and then DH cut the rest of the cord off while the baby was laying in the warmer right after she was born.

Tara,


I don't have an answer to your question because my DH would do anything to AVOID cutting the cord! Isn't that hysterical? I do know that people have said that they have "cut the cord" with a C section - but I think it may be the cutting that your doctor would allow - they just don't clarify that piece... I'm hopeful that someone who knows will chime in here and answer your quesiton!! Good luck tomorrow! Please let us know how it goes!!
