Premature Infants Receiving Milking or Delayed Cord Clamping: Randomized Controlled Multicenter Non-inferiority Trial
This study is being done to find out whether umbilical cord milking (UCM) is at least as good as or better than delayed cord clamping (DCC) to reduce bleeding in the brain or prevent death in premature newborns. The investigators will study short and long term outcomes of infants delivered before 32 weeks gestation that receive either UCM or DCC.
