I conveyed my intention to my gynae when I am about to give birth to my baby no.2 after I studied about the benefits of delayed cord clamping, i.e. reduce risk of anemia. However, my gynae said it will cause higher newborn jaundice in Asian baby. Thus, in the end I decided not to perform delayed cord clamping.

What does gynae say? Not all gyneas are open to delayed cord clamping - would check with him /her first

Personally, I don't see any benefit in private cord blood banking. There are very specific requirements in order to utilise the cord blood. Donating to the Singapore Cord Blood Bank is a more economical and generous choice. It is actually possible to do both delayed cord clamping and cord blood banking. https://www.americordblood.com/2015/06/10/delayed-cord-clamping-and-cord-blood-banking-a-parents-guide/
