Weekend Movie: Delayed Cord Clamping

Haven't featured a weekend movie in a while, but this is really worth watching. From the always thought-provoking Dr. Nicholas Fogelson of Academic OB/GYN: a great presentation on delayed (a.k.a. non-premature) cord clamping.

Here's part one; click through to YouTube for the subsequent parts (totaling 50 minutes - again, so worthwhile).

At least watch as far as the orangutan baby being born.

  1. Thanks for posting this. Hubby and I ended up watching all 50 minutes. I was never quite sure of Fogelson's stance on natural childbirth, though--was he being tongue-in-cheek when he called it "natural birth nonsense"? Or does he still think the rest of it is (apart from delayed cord clamping).... I am curious enough about him to read through his blog.
