Cord Blood: Who owns it?

The purpose of providing this important knowledge is to remind the parents that the umbilical cord blood, first and foremost, belongs to the baby; not only before birth but also immediately after birth. The baby is NOT to be depleted of these basic nutrients that are needed for circulation to the lungs after birth.

The photograph shows a happy pink baby who would say, “As I enter my new world, thank you for leaving my cord long and allowing me to have my blood that is needed to fill my lungs to prevent respiratory distress, persistent fetal circulation, cerebral hypoxia, intraventricular hemorrhage, anemia, and possibly autism.”
