Umbilical cord milking benefits preterm infants after cesarean birth

July 6, 2015

Umbilical cord milking improved systemic blood flow in preterm infants delivered by cesarean section compared with delayed cord clamping, according to a recent study.

“The findings need to be confirmed in a larger number of births, but at this point, it appears that umbilical cord milking may prove to be of great benefit to preterm infants delivered via cesarean,” Tonse Raju, MD, chief of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development’s pregnancy and perinatology branch, said in a press release.
