Precious Breath & Oxygen at Birth – save lives with OCC
How does Optimal Cord Clamping affect oxygen in Newborns?
The umbilical cord provides a steady stream of oxygen to Your Baby even after birth. (source: WHO)
Simply waiting for few minutes saves lives by providing babies with more time to start breathing, using their own lungs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 29% of all newborn deaths worldwide are caused by deprivation of oxygen at birth. (source: WHO)
2 in every 10 newborns are oxygen deprived. (source: BirthInjuryGuide.org)
Deprivation of Oxygen at birth can lead to lifelong disabilities, including: Cerebral Palsy, Autism, ADHD, seizures, and varying behavioral problems. It’s not natural to cut the umbilical cord immediately. Immediate cord clamping is non-scientific. It is simply done out of habit and is damaging our newborn babies. OCC provides a natural transition for Your baby to start breathing using their lungs.
