From the BBC News

We didn’t even clamp Zoe’s cord at all. We didn’t cut her from her placenta until about 2 hours afterward and then an hour after that I birthed the placenta. After she as cut from her placenta we just left her dangle. Everything we read gave us no real reason to clamp it off at all. After three days she had her first bath and then e kept it clean with witch hazel.
