Umbilical cord scissors are specialized medical scissors designed for cutting the umbilical cord during childbirth. They are an essential tool used by healthcare professionals, typically obstetricians or midwives, to safely and cleanly sever the connection between the newborn baby and the placenta.
Umbilical cord scissors are distinguished by their curved, blunt-ended blades, which reduce the risk of accidentally injuring the baby or mother during the cutting process. The scissors are usually made of medical-grade stainless steel to ensure sterility and durability.
The procedure involves clamping the umbilical cord with a hemostat or cord clamp and then cutting it with these scissors. This crucial step in childbirth helps to ensure a smooth transition from the womb to the outside world for the baby. The design of umbilical cord scissors minimizes the risk of infection and harm while providing a precise and efficient means of separating the newborn from the placenta.
