Delayed cutting of the umbilical cord by 2-minutes makes newborns develop better in the first days of their lives, according to University of Granada scientists. Late clamping of the umbilical cord increased the anti-oxidant capacity of mature newborns, and the moderation of inflammatory effects in the case of those born from induced labor.

This research by the University of Granada and the San Cecilio Clinical Hospital (Granada) compares the impact of the moment of clamping upon the oxidative stress and the inflammatory signal produced during delivery in both the mother and the newborn. It is revealed that the umbilical cord clamping time influences the resistance to oxidative stress in newborns.

The study is published in the journal Pediatrics.
