Delayed cord clamping could halve risk of death in premature babies

Waiting for two minutes or longer to clamp the umbilical cord of a premature baby soon after birth could help reduce the risk of death, compared with immediately clamping the umbilical cord, or waiting a shorter time before doing so. Delaying clamping could decrease the child’s risk of death by more than half relative to immediate clamping.
