Background: Recent protocol proposed by the World Health Organization to manage the third stage of labour replaced the early cord clamping by deferred cord clamping to induce numerous neonatal benefits. But this practice is still resisted in most of the Arab countries. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of deferred versus early umbilical cord clamping on maternal and neonatal outcomes. Methods: A quasi experimental research design was utilized. The study was conducted at…

TLDR
Term babies receiving delayed cord clamping had improved hemoglobin levels with no adverse effect on other maternal and neonatal variables, and creating evidence-based practice guidelines for umbilical Cord clamping in Jordanian hospitals is essential to improve neonatal and maternal health.
A randomized controlled study of immediate versus delayed umbilical cord clamping in infants born by elective caesarean section
TLDR
Delayed Cord Clamping did not improve SpO 2, HR and T values compared to immediate cord clamping, however, Group B showed greater haematocrit and bilirubin values at 72 h compared to Group A.
A Quasi-Experimental Study to Assess Consequences of Early Versus Delay Umbilical Cord Clamping on Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes in Beni-Suef city
Nowadays, the timing of umbilical cord is considering а growing area of research. The researchers looking for optimize maternal & neonate outcomes. The early umbilical camping is determined as the
Assess Stability of Neonatal Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) with Delay Cord Clamping WhilePracticing Kangaroo Mother Care and Compare it with Defined References Ranges of Oxygen Saturation
TLDR
It is recommended that all stable newborns should have delay cord cutting and be placed and remain in direct skin-to-skin contact with their mothers immediately after delivery for at least 5 minutes this could significantly improve their cardiovascular stability.
Evidence Based Practice Intervention Effectiveness for Nurses on Integrative Developmental Care of Mothers and their Neonates in Rural Health Settings
TLDR
EBP intervention program on IDC of mothers and their neonates had positive effect on nurses and improve their knowledge and practices in rural health settings, and staff nurses educate about developmental care should be conducted.

Effect of Early Versus Late Umbilical Cord Clamping of Term Infants on Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes
TLDR
Delaying clamping of the cord for more than one minute to three minutes seems not to increase the risk of postpartum hemorrhage and late cord clamping can be advantageous for the infant by improving hematological values especially the status which may be of clinical value particularly in developing countries where infants access to good nutrition is poor.
Effect of timing of umbilical cord clamping of term infants on maternal and neonatal outcomes.
TLDR
There were no significant differences between early versus late cord clamping groups for the primary outcome of severe postpartum haemorrhage or for most other neonatal morbidity outcomes, such as Apgar score less than seven at five minutes or admission to the special care nursery or neonatal intensive care unit.
Impact of early versus delayed umbilical cord clamping on post partum blood loss: a randomized controlled trial -
TLDR
The timing of cord clamping has no impact on the mean blood loss and duration of third stage of labour and delayed clamping significantly increases mean venous haemoglobin and hematocrit at 90 ±7 days without increasing NICU admissions.
Effects of delayed compared with early umbilical cord clamping on maternal postpartum hemorrhage and cord blood gas sampling: a randomized trial
TLDR
It is concluded that delayed cord clamping is a feasible method from an obstetric perspective and did not have a significant effect on maternal postpartum hemorrhage or on the proportion of valid blood gas samples.
Clamping Time and Its Effect on Mothers and Their Full Term Newborns
TLDR
It can be concluded that delaying clamping of the cord for more than one minute to three minutes doesn't increase the risk of maternal postpartum hemorrhage and late cord clamping can be advantageous for the newborn by improving hemoglobin, hematocrit and ferritin values.

TLDR
Despite substantial evidence supporting the practice of delayed cord clamping, few institutions have policies regarding this practice and obstetricians’ beliefs about the appropriate timing are not consistent with the evidence that demonstrates its beneficial impact on neonatal outcomes.
A randomized controlled trial on delayed cord clamping and iron status at 3–5 months in term neonates held at the level of maternal pelvis
TLDR
With the baby held at the level of mother's pelvis, DCC resulted in increased ferritin concentrations and reduced the prevalence of iron deficiency at 3-5 months of age, without demonstrable adverse neonatal effects.
Effect of timing of umbilical cord clamping and other strategies to influence placental transfusion at preterm birth on maternal and infant outcomes.
TLDR
Providing additional placental blood to the preterm baby by either delaying cord clamping for 30 to 120 seconds, rather than early clamping, seems to be associated with less need for transfusion, better circulatory stability, less intraventricular haemorrhage (all grades) and lower risk for necrotising enterocolitis.
The effect of early and late umbilical cord clamping on neonatal hematocrit
TLDR
Late cord clamping does not lead to a significant difference in the hematocrit level of the neonate or neonatal polycythemia, but is associated with a significant increase in ENBV and a significant decrease in PRBV.
