Abstract Background
Policies for timing of cord clamping vary, with early cord clamping generally carried out in the first 60 seconds after birth, whereas later cord clamping usually involves clamping the umbilical cord more than one minute after the birth or when cord pulsation has ceased. The benefits and potential harms of each policy are debated.

Objectives

To determine the effects of early cord clamping compared with late cord clamping after birth on maternal and neonatal outcomes

Search methods

We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (13 February 2013).
Selection criteria
Randomised controlled trials comparing early and late cord clamping.

Data collection and analysis

Two review authors independently assessed trial eligibility and quality and extracted data.

Main results

We included 15 trials involving a total of 3911 women and infant pairs. We judged the trials to have an overall moderate risk of bias.
