This particular study examines the potential relationship between early cord clamping, infant asphyxia and autism. It summarizes: Brain lesions are associated with autism and related disorders[1].

Placental oxygenation until the lungs are functioning prevents newborn hypoxia. Placental oxygenation until the lungs are functioning should prevent autism that is caused by hypoxic brain lesions.
