Birth plan template for DCC?

Would someone have a template for a birthing plan about DCC for a term and healthy (or non complications) birth? I watched the webinar recently (uploaded youtube May 15th 2020). There was a lot of information, with a lot of variables, and some confusion on my end.

Time was 1-10 minutes. No milking. If baby breathes on their own. I was just wondering if someone has a step by step in detail. I'm new to this information and spoke with our obgyn at our appointment today (mommas 35wks), and she said they generally go a minute, but also milk.

I do not have a birth plan for healthy term babies, but there may be 2 helpful resources online for you to checkout: https://www.bloodtobaby.com/ and https://waitforwhite.com/. I am sure Hannah Tizard or Amanda Burleigh can support you further with your questions.

We talk to the Obstetrician before delivery and find out if there are no contraindication for DCC. If so we plan for 3 minutes for DCC in term babies. For a vaginal delivery after delivery the baby is placed on the mother's abdomen and covered and monitored. Sometimes the placenta is delivered before 3 minutes and presently we are cutting the cord then though this is controversial. If for some reason the cord has to be cut early then only milking is done. For LSCS we keep the baby on the OT table and follow the same procedure. All attending Pediatricians in our hospital are aware of the contraindications and follow it. In fact in our delivery notes we have made a column for DCC time and reasons for not doing DCC which they fill up. For preterms we do DCC for 1 minute and strictly no milking

I agree! You could expect Hannah and Amanda to provide balanced information.
