Delayed Cord Clamping: The vast benefits of doing nothing for a little while

Delayed Cord Clamping: The vast benefits of doing nothing for a little while

What is one of the first interventions we perform on a normal birth? What is so 'normal' that we don't even think of it as an intervention? Cutting the cord!

Dr. Greene is asking questions about this intervention... what is the evidence for immediate cord clamping? Here is a Twitter record of a Twitter chat last night on the case for delayed cord clamping. At the moment of birth one-third of the baby's blood is still in the umbilical cord or placenta. What are the potential negative effects of cutting the cord immediately? Read this rather sobering exchange to follow and then take ACTION by spreading the word.

RT @DrGreene: Interventions should have evidence! No evidence for first intervention - immediate stopping baby’s normal flow! #LTKH

A4: In some low-income countries as many as 95% of delivery clinicians practice immediate cord clamping. #LTKH

RT @DrGreene: A4: Doctors thought they were doing good by immediately clamping the cord. And exported the practice around the world. #LTKH

@CarolynHastie
DrGreene I highly recommend reading Mercer's work. Here is an interview I did w/her in 2009 scienceandsensibility.org/?p=810 #LTKH

RT @DrGreene: immediate cord clamping increases risk of iron deficiency anemia up to 10x. #LTKH

A5: I did a TEDx Talk about #TICCTOCC that I’d love you all to see - drgreene.com/dr-greene-at-t… #LTKH

@DrGreene
!!!RT @midwifeamy: Skin-to-skin mama and baby! HUGE benefit! RT @MsGreene: Q6: Are there other advantages to waiting to cut the cord? #LTKH

ACOG? Not yet RT @JustinMorganMD: Is delayed cord clamping promoted by ACOG and Ob-Gyn residency programs? @JenLincolnMD #LTKH

RT @DrGreene: 3: At the moment of birth 1/3 of the baby’s blood is still in the umbilical cord & placenta. #LTKH

A6: Other benefits of optimal cord clamping - The most significant impact of all may be stem cells, but we don’t know yet. #LTKH

RT @MsGreene: #TICCTOCC RT @morethanfoodinc: @DrGreene Important to address cause of anemia rather than band-aid w/ fortification of rice f#LTKH

RT @DrGreene: A4: Sadly today immediate cord clamping is the norm in most places, robbing baby of iron, O2 antibodies, & stem-cells. #LTKH

New preeclampsia risk-factor checklists to aid health care providers in identifying pregnant women who may benefit from prophylactic low-dose aspirin

agosto 14, 2020

This past June, the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) published in the   American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology   a special statement on a collection of two new checklists they created to support health care providers in identifying pregnant women at heightened risk of developing preeclampsia, a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.

Are multiple micronutrient supplements superior to the traditional iron-folic acid supplements taken during pregnancy?

It is common in low- and middle-income countries for women to experience micronutrient deficiencies as a result of poor diet. This becomes a particularly acute issue in pregnancy due to an increase in the nutrient requirements of both mother and fetus. Deficiencies in micronutrients like vitamin A, iron, iodine, and folate can negatively impact the health of both the mother and fetus.

Studies suggest a potential direct and dose-response relationship between anemia and postpartum hemorrhage
Studies suggest a potential direct and dose-response relationship between anemia and postpartum hemorrhage

julio 20, 2020

Anemia is a concern in pregnancy and is usually addressed with iron supplementation. Its linkage to postpartum hemorrhage has been of concern because those who are anemic are likely to expire more rapidly once blood loss occurs.
