In the comments at the end of the blog Dr. Fogelson comments thathe might develope this further into a peer-reviewed article. That is an article that I will look forward to reading.
Delayed Cord Clamping Should Be Standard Practice in Obstetrics
Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
There are times in our medical careers where we see a shift in thought that leads to a completely different way of doing things. This happened with episiotomy in the last few decades. Most recently trained physicians cannot imagine doing routine episiotomy with every delivery, yet it was not so long ago that this was common practice. ...
Later in my career I was exposed to enough other-thinking minds to consider that maybe this practice was not right. And after some research I found that there was some pretty compelling evidence that indeed, early clamping is harmful for the baby. So much evidence in fact, that I am a bit surprised that as a community, OBs in the US have not developed a culture of delayed routine cord clamping for neonatal benefit.
