Some studies think so. http://www.whale.to/a/morley5.html


There can be serious risks with the currently popular practice of clamping the chord to early while it is still pulsating and many benefits of letting the chord naturally pulsate until it finishes pumping .


Whenever a pulsating umbilical cord is clamped, 20-60% of the baby's total blood volume is trapped inside the placenta. A 9 pound baby manufactures only 10 ounces of blood during gestation. It will take over 6 months for the baby to replenish the volume of blood lost by early cord clamping.

In essence, newborns become involuntary blood donors. HALF their blood volume is lost when their cords are early clamped.

This decrease in necessary blood volume causes the babies to become anemic. In most cases, the anemia is not diagnosed and the infant is sent home in a weakened state, more susceptible to a host of complications, including SIDS.

Restricted umbilical cord problems associated with anemia are Autism, heart perforations, thyroid disorders, brain tumors, leukemia, hormonal imbalances and liver/kidney disease.

Male infants will suffer more than females. They have higher metabolisms that require 10% more blood. This trend is also seen in that males represent a greater proportion of children receiving special education services in schools and higher incidences of disabilities such as ADD, behavioral issues, and Autism.

Currently, 1 in 16 babies are revived after birth. For how many is this due to low blood volume, an inflicted condition? In effect, medical personnel must undo the wrong they're created. Another critical correlation is the fact that the United States ranks 29th for infant mortality in the world and practices early cord clamping as a routine procedure.

Any baby whose cord has been early clamped is weakened. Weaker babies become more susceptible to infection, especially at the site of the cut cord. There are 25 known infectious strains resistant to all antibiotics and they are primarily found in hospitals. This mix is just asking for trouble.

Another of the restricted umbilical cord problems is engorged placenta, a direct threat to the mother and future pregnancies. When the blood flow is restricted by clamping, the blood can pool in the placenta, causing it to rupture or backflow the baby's blood into the mother's. This cause lead to serious side effects, such as maternal hemorrhage and can even prohibit future pregnancies due to the blood mixing.

The main benefits being:
increased oxygen supply
Increased levels of iron
Lower risk of anaemia
Less transfusions and
Less incidence of intraventricular haemorrhage

A two-minute delay in cord clamping increased the child’s iron reserve by 27-47 mg of iron, which is equivalent to 1-2 months of an infants iron requirements. This could help to prevent iron deficiency from developing before 6 months of age.

delayed clamping is beneficial for babies across the board, the studies found that the impact of delayed clamping is particularly significant for infants who have low birth weights, are born to iron-deficient mothers, are premature, or those who do not receive baby formula or iron-fortified milk.

These are some free urls for more information to the serious birth reviewer or researcher, including doctors who have been wrongrfully trained by the expert groups, or publications in their own medical journals used as a defense in medical protocols, or policies. The medical students are adults and they can report false teachings as well as any one else.

Please, share with others and medical publishers and authors.

That they are a medical student does not mean they are not without resources of reporting false science and teachings by their superiors. The duty is to report child endangering.

Any child taken for recovery after a certified person has clamped off the umbilical cord before the placenta was birthed, and did not allow the child their respectful revival on the unclamped cord and taking all revival equipment to the child, must be suspect of criminal incompetence. The early clamping did not benefit the child as is being claimed. The child is weaker by not having full placenta blood infusion before the cord was clamped, finger-squeezed off, or cord tied. The evidence is testable, measurable and visual. Some children die of too soon cord compression being the choice of man's discretion. This is whether that person is a medic, doctor, surgeon, fireman, or police officer. All are being falsely trained. Why? The issue is seeking the infant's deprived blood. It may be as simple as that. Of course, prejudice to weaken another's child must be fairly considered, by its sex, race, color, or marital status or belief of the family, or the child's observed physical condition. Man still hurts man.

All informed mothers should be telling others that the only way for all babies to be treated equal and for equal opportunity to compete in studies, sports, or whatever, is to allow all babies to be revived on the unclamped umbilical cord and quality of life-line. To recommend what some consider an optimal time delay is misleading. The proper time to do any signed cosmetic removal of the umbilical cord is after the placenta is birthed, and all pulsation has ceased in the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord is then white/ silver, flat and not pulsating. Any earlly clamping and the cord is yet red, firm and pulsating.

This early but often called delayed clamping yet leaves blood in the placenta and in the cord, and it is this blood that is sought and sold from the local community's health services. It is always a local violation . The cover up of allowing any earlier clamping is by stating various medical authors who are published in numerous medical publications that many private and certified medical persons use as a defense. This is their defense that they believed the child would be harmed to receive all of their natural blood infusion.

They do the hasty clamping before they have evidence of fact the child would be harmed. It is a belief and not a fact used as a defense. These medical persons aid and abet to have what is left in the cord and the placenta destroyed. The Administration of unelected health officials have approved of this destruction of evidence, in most instances. Parents often cannot find out where their child's deprived placenta blood went. Why not?

This placenta blood is then called cord blood because it is drained or syringed from the umbilical cord. For a full term baby, this is adult blood and adult stem cells, too. The private blood banks deceive the public by calling placenta blood, cord blood, suggesting only a tad of blood cures any or all diseases. This cure is not a fact using deprived placenta blood. What is a fact is the increase of internally damaged children with subtle to serious brain injuries.

There is no optimal compressing off a functional and pulsating umbilical cord. Any compression on the umbilical cord before the placenta is birthed and all pulsation in the cord has ceased is harmrful to the child. Any concealment of the amount of blood left in the umbhilical cord and in the placenta is failing to protect the legal rights of the newborn child, and what it may have measured once drained or syringed through the placenta or the cord is intentional blockage of the child's rights to have that recorded on their own medical chart. The reason the one-half-cup of blood deprived the child is for legal-medical-reasons of this cover-up. Where does the deprived blood go? Sometimes, if one has a religious position taking blood for another's use or even in science is against their faith, then the blood may be poured down the drain or burned as waste. However, this is yet concealment of the facts, how much blood was deprived the child. Other parents have signed a local medical waiver that the discarding of human cells is by the local allowance, or by the State, Province or Territory. In this situation where parents have signed this appropriate discarding, the human cells from the blood collection may be sold but only by those profiting in the medical groups. No parents can by law sell their child's deprived blood, the cord, or the placenta for their own profits. They can only allow others in the medical groups by their policy to profit of what they deprived their own baby or babies. The parents are often poorly educated when they have violated their child's rights to have full placenta blood infusion, and have agreed to any cord clamping before the placenta was birthed and all pulsation had ceased in the cord.

By proper time allowance, from ten to 20 minutes, the cord is white/silver, flat and not pulsating. When early clamping, often called delayed of seconds or minutes under ten minutes, the cord may be yet red, firm and pulsating.

The child who is early clamped before the placenta is birthed can be tested and found anemic of low red cells, low white cells, low platelets, and of low pressure and volume measurement. It is a weaker child if compared to the child that received full placenta blood infusion.

After all, if there were any real truth that the full placenta blood infusion is harmful to the child, there is always blood letting. This is taking the blood now inside the baby, whereas, early cord clamping is taking blood before it could be a benefit to the baby's expanding lungs.

I will be too, when I have another. I realized I have no idea if my son was clamped or not as he was a c section and I was throwing up at the time.

Still very interesting. If I have another I will be letting all of the blood pump out.

Correlation is not causation. I not the author of the study actually stated that more data is needed to prove this and even gave a list of the data that would need to be gathered. Its an interesting line of study, but not one that is any more than a random theory at this point.
