You learn something new every day

My new “something” today was from a birth story I just read, in which the mom said she had learned on “some birth list or other” that if the umbilical cord is still active, the baby will startle if you touch the placenta end. Of course, that is assuming the cord is not clamped and cut immediately, or “delayed” to all of 2 or 3 minutes, but rather is left to quit pulsating naturally. But I’ve never heard that.
