Should you delay clamping the umbilical cord? The answer is an astounding YES!

Recent research shows that the procedure of clamping the umbilical cord for convenience has caused the death of millions of premature babies over the last 50 years.

Leviticus 17:14a “The life of every creature is in its blood.”

It is a matter of life and death. Parents should demand that doctors need to be educated. Do NOT clamp that cord! Cutting off the return of a babies blood through the umbilical cord has never made sense, yet medicine has performed this procedure for over 50 plus years without scientific validity. This begs the question: how many other mistakes are being made by the medical community?
