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 new-born baby and the placenta.


Plastic umbilical cord scissors are medical instruments designed for cutting and clamping the umbilical cord during childbirth. These scissors are specifically made with plastic components, offering a lightweight and disposable option for use in delivery rooms or other healthcare settings where the umbilical cord needs to be cut.

Key features and considerations regarding plastic umbilical cord scissors:

Material – Plastic:

Plastic umbilical cord scissors are made entirely or predominantly of plastic. The plastic material is often chosen for its disposability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of use.


These scissors are typically designed for single-use, meaning they are discarded after cutting the umbilical cord for a specific newborn. Single-use instruments help maintain a sterile environment during childbirth and reduce the risk of cross-contamination.


Plastic construction makes these scissors lightweight, providing ease of use for healthcare professionals during the birthing process.


Plastic umbilical cord scissors are generally designed with safety in mind. They often have blunt or rounded tips to reduce the risk of accidental injury to the baby or healthcare provider.

Ergonomic Design:

These scissors may have an ergonomic design with comfortable handles to facilitate easy and precise cutting of the umbilical cord.

Clamping Function:

In addition to cutting, some plastic umbilical cord scissors may have a clamping function. This allows for temporary clamping of the cord before cutting, helping control bleeding.


Plastic umbilical cord scissors are often considered more cost-effective than their metal counterparts, making them a practical choice for disposable use in medical settings.


After use, plastic umbilical cord scissors are discarded in accordance with medical waste disposal protocols. This ensures proper disposal and minimizes the risk of infection.

Compliance with Regulations:

Plastic umbilical cord scissors must comply with relevant healthcare regulations and standards to ensure their safety and efficacy in clinical settings.

It’s important to note that the choice of umbilical cord scissors, whether plastic or metal, may vary based on healthcare facility policies, regional guidelines, and individual preferences of healthcare professionals. The primary goal is to ensure a safe and aseptic cutting of the umbilical cord during childbirth.
