There is a relationship Between Cord Clamping and Autism

The following researched article relates autism with decreased oxygen at birth and emphasizes the importance of allowing the lungs to function before cutting the umbilical cord. Cord cutting is justified by those who want to whisk the baby away from the mother to tend to it. But then again, perhaps the baby is within a limited range of movement with the attached cord because the baby is supposed to stay right with the mother. What a concept...

The following article examines the potential relationship between early cord clamping, infant asphyxia and autism.

It summarizes:

  • " Brain lesions are associated with autism and related disorders[1]."
  • " Hypoxic brain lesions in monkeys are associated with intelligence/memory defects similar to autism. [2]"
  • "Immediate cord clamping causes newborn hypoxia.
  • "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."
