A 30- to 60-second delay in clamping the umbilical cord leads to better outcomes for preterm infants but research is less clear about the effects on term infants, according to an opinion by a committee of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists with help from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The opinion said the most important benefit in preterm infants is an almost 50% reduced risk of intraventricular hemorrhaging.
