    I had my ante natal classes on Friday and the lady who did the class (can't remember her name - mega baby brain lol) told us there's a reason why the cord is the length it is, basically when the baby is born if we were to just lay there and not do anything, not move at all the baby will crawl (more drag taelf with the movements its learnt in the uterus) up our bodies to the breast whilst the cord is still attached to the placenta, I was fascinated I've never heard of this before! Had anyone else heard of this? Amazing but truly freaky haha hope everyone is ok xxx

    Wow how interesting!! I have wondered why they are different lengths because I've heard them comment on program's like OBEM saying things like 'oh this is a short cord'! Xx

    Amazing! I still find pregnancy so incredible, despite the billions of women who've experienced it!

    I remember someone posting on here that they had a short cord as it wouldn't reach the breast and they wanted to wait for cord to stop pulsating before it was cut so they couldn't bf immediately and baby had to lie on their stomach for a while. Anyone know about the pulsating thing?!

    Its just to let the blood keep flowing to baby until it stops then they cut it, meant to be good for baby because they get that little extra. I'm not an expert on it tho x

    Its apparently why your nipples become darker and larger to make it easier fo the baby to fine - found that out on my UNICEF breastfeeding course!
