- Answered 13 Jun 2019 Conflict of interest declaration: None There appear to be quite a few, see https://www.tripdatabase.com/search?categoryid=27&criteria=Delayed%20Umbilical%20Cord%20Clamping There are also recent systematic reviews, including this 2018 one Delayed vs early umbilical cord clamping for preterm infants: a systematic review and meta-analysis (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29097178) which was reviewed by the NIHR Dissemination Centre as part of their Signal series. This includes links to other papers, see https://discover.dc.nihr.ac.uk/content/signal-000548/delayed-umbilical-cord-clamping-reduces-hospital-mortality-for-preterm-infants Finally, as part of the search I came across this fairly recent ACOG ‘Committee opinion’ https://www.acog.org/Clinical-Guidance-and-Publications/Committee-Opinions/Committee-on-Obstetric-Practice/Delayed-Umbilical-Cord-Clamping-After-Birth
