    Also if you leave an umbilical cord unclamped for too long there is a chance the baby’s blood will coagulate. This is what happened to me when I was born… I was born in a disabled ambulance with the EMT in charge of my birth panicking because he just happened to be the husband of one my mom’s friend’s at the time.

    On the extreme off chance I ever give birth (health reasons… my life pretty much sucks by the way) I know not to do that… because… yeah… I’ve heard stories about mine…
