This research was conducted to carry out the effect of umbilical cord clamping time on baby anemia.

Full description

This study is an experimental, randomized controlled study. The sample of the study consisted of 65 pregnant women and newborns (intervention=32, control=33) who applied for delivery at Ege University Medical Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic at the time of the study. In this study, "Descriptive Data Form of Impact of Umbilical Cord Clamping Time on Infant Anemia" was used as a data collection tool. In the intervention group waited 60 seconds for umbilical cord clamping in the second stage of labor, in the control group the umbilical cord was clamped in the first 15 seconds. For the data of the first stage of the study, the neonatal hematocrit and bilirubin measurements and the need for phototherapy due to hyperbilirubinemia were evaluated 48 hours after birth. In the second stage of the study, data on anaemia screening performed in family medicine at the end of the fourth month of birth were examined. Statistical analysis of the data from the study was performed using IBM SPSS Statistics 25.0 package program. Parametric tests were used for statistical analysis of the data with a normal distribution. The level of statistical significance was determined as p<0.05.
