Umbilical Cord Clamp Cutter


Model Number – NH-77712

Brand – Niche Healthcare

An umbilical cord clamp cutter is a specialized medical tool used in childbirth to safely and effectively cut the umbilical cord. This tool is designed to work in conjunction with umbilical cord clamps, which are used to securely close and seal the cord immediately after a baby is born.


A cord clamp cutter is a medical instrument designed specifically for cutting the umbilical cord during childbirth. The umbilical cord connects the developing foetus to the placenta, providing a pathway for oxygen, nutrients, and waste products between the baby and the mother. After childbirth, the umbilical cord is clamped and cut as part of routine post-delivery procedures. The cord clamp cutter is used to make a clean and precise cut through the clamped portion of the umbilical cord. Here’s an overview of its function:

Key features of an umbilical cord clamp cutter include:

The umbilical cord is typically clamped in two places shortly after the baby is born – one clamp closer to the baby and another closer to the placenta.

The cord clamp cutter is used to cut the cord between these two clamps.

1. Sterility:

Cord clamp cutters are designed to be sterile to prevent infection during this critical post-delivery procedure.

The instruments are often packaged in a sterile manner and handled with sterile gloves to maintain aseptic conditions.

2. Precision:

The cord clamp cutter provides a sharp, clean cut through the umbilical cord, ensuring that the procedure is done efficiently and with minimal trauma to the tissues.

3. Ease of Use:

The design of the cord clamp cutter allows healthcare professionals, such as midwives or obstetricians, to perform the cutting procedure quickly and safely.

4. Safety Measures:

Cord clamp cutters are designed to minimize the risk of accidental injury to the baby or healthcare provider during the cutting process.

The instruments may have specific features, such as rounded tips or guards, to enhance safety.

5. Disposal:

After the cord is cut, the cut portion of the umbilical cord is usually disposed of as medical waste.

The cord clamp and cutter may be discarded in accordance with medical waste disposal protocols.

The cutting of the umbilical cord is a standard practice after childbirth, marking the separation of the newborn from the placenta. The use of cord clamp cutters is a routine and essential part of post-delivery care to ensure a safe and hygienic transition for both the baby and the mother. Healthcare professionals follow established protocols and guidelines to perform this procedure with precision and care.
