Educate Yourselves About Cordclamping

My wife had her baby 1 week ago at Swedish. We begged the Dr not to cut the cord to soon or pull on the placenta. She not only refused, she threatened to walk out of the room and leave, twice. We begged enough that she first gave us 30 seconds then another 15 seconds. We asked at that moment, is there any harm in leaving the cord attached for longer, she said no. But she refused to not cut the cord about 60 seconds later. I was thinking the whole time, she wants to sell it and make the money. Why else would she behave like this, especially at a time like this. We asked repeatedly for her not to cut or pull, probably 5-10 times, she kept doing it. And this is supposdly a "good" hospital with half nurse mid-wives on staff...
