He is a research Scientist in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at the Yale University of Medicine and the Director of the Reproductive and Placental Research Unit with the following Research Interests: Pregnancy Complications and losses, Autistic Disorder, Endometrium, and Infertility.Source: At a Total Loss
Implantation Failure and Recurrent Miscarriage With Dr. Harvey Kliman MD, PhD.
Implantation failure and recurrent miscarriage is rampant. And unfortunately, most patients are left without answers or direction. In today’s episode, I interview Dr. Harvey Kliman MD, PhD, creator of the EFT test, otherwise known as the Endometrial Function Test.Source: Fertility in Focus, Episode 113
Video: Measuring Placenta In Pregnancy | Why This Tool Can Help Save Babies with Dr. Harvey Kliman
It may come as a surprise to you that your baby's life-sustaining organ, the placenta, is NOT routinely measured throughout pregnancy. It's as if this necessary organ is just expected to continue growing appropriately & no one bothers to make sure. No wonder placenta related issues (including small placentas) are a common cause of stillbirth!Source: Sacred Birth Circle | Beyond the Pregnancy Guide
Podcast: Measuring Placenta In Pregnancy | Why This Tool Can Help Save Babies with Dr. Harvey Kliman
Fresh off the stage of the #bigPUSH2022 in Washington, D.C., where he proclaimed to bereaved parents "it is NOT the your fault", Dr. Harvey Kliman, Yale's World-Renowned MD, PhD, placenta expert is joining us to explain how the placenta can be measured with a simple ultrasound technique he & his father developed (there's even an instructional video & hand-out for providers on measuretheplacenta.org & an APP: Merwins EPV Calculator).Source: Sacred birth circle podcast
The Important Work of Dr. Harvey Kliman and Why His Research Matters in 2022
Today we welcome Dr. Harvey Kliman to the podcast. He graciously spends time with us diving into why his research is important to those who have experienced infertility, or pregnancy and infant loss, why it's not often not prioritized in the world of research and what he feels like are large barriers in our healthcare system today. Thank you to Dr. Kliman for coming to the podcast to share the data, science and research that gives loss families information, and at times, closure, when they otherwise had none. We are so thankful for your work in the world, Dr. Kliman. If you have experienced pregnancy or infant loss and would like to contact Dr. Kliman and his team to investigate your case further, you can find more information here: https://medicine.yale.edu/obgyn/kliman/placenta/pregnancyloss/Source: Ripples Through Waves
They lost pregnancies for unclear reasons. Then they were prosecuted.
More than 50 women have been prosecuted for child neglect or manslaughter in the United States since 1999 because they tested positive for drug use after a miscarriage or stillbirth. The medical community calls this approach harmful and counterproductive.Source: The Washington Post
Losing a pregnancy could land you in jail in post-Roe America
Chelsea Becker spent 16 months in a California jail awaiting a murder trial after her pregnancy ended in a stillbirth. "I was prepared to just stay at least for the next 15 years in prison," she told NPR. Becker's 2019 arrest drew national attention. With the backdrop of the Supreme Court blocking a Louisiana law that would shutter nearly all abortion clinics in that state, advocates warned that Becker's arrest would empower more prosecutions for pregnancy outcomes.Source: NPR All Things Considered
We know the pain of stillbirth, and we're working to lower the numbers in the US
In October, the Stillbirth Health Improvement and Education (SHINE) for Autumn Act was introduced by Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., Kathy Castor, D-Fla., and Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla. Passed in the House on Dec. 8, this bill has been introduced in the Senate by Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. We commend the bipartisan advancement of this legislation to finally address the stillbirth crisis in our country.Source: USA Today
Stillbirth continues to happen. The silence around it needs to end.
Research has shown at least 25 percent of stillbirths — 47 percent at term — could be averted. But unlike all these other risks that parents hear much more about, when it comes to stillbirth, no one is empowering families to keep their babies safe.Source: Washington Post
Dr. Harvey Kliman on the placenta
Dr. Harvey Kliman never thought he’d spend his life studying the hidden secrets of the placenta, but here he is, doing just that, and loving every moment. This Yale University physician scientist is my guest this week on Oh Baby!, and brings to our conversation the many wonders of the placenta, revealing that it is derived from the father (), that a small placenta is the leading cause of stillbirth, and that the number of folds in a placenta can determine whether a baby has a high chance of autism. Plus, whether eating your placenta is actually beneficial (or whether you should carry it around on a staff!) This episode deals with heavy matters, but is lighthearted too.Source: Oh Baby! with Olesia Plokhii
Everybody’s Got One
We all think we know the story of pregnancy. Sperm meets egg, followed by nine months of nurturing, nesting, and quiet incubation. But this story isn’t the nursery rhyme we think it is. In a way, it’s a struggle, almost like a tiny war. And right on the front lines of that battle is another major player on the stage of pregnancy that not a single person on the planet would be here without. An entirely new organ: the placenta.Source: Radiolab WNYC Studios
Endometrial Function Test & Everything from Implantation On with guest Dr. Kliman
Dr. Harvey Kliman discovered and created the Endometrial Function Test. He is Director of the Reproductive and Placental Research Unit at Yale and focuses his research on infertility and pregnancy complications. In addition to his research and teaching activities at Yale, he also consults with Physicians to evaluate complicated cases related to pregnancy loss, and poor pregnancy outcomes. I'm honored to have him join me today on The Egg Whisperer Show to talk about the EFT, the endometrium, and everything you need to know about implantation.Source: The Egg Whisperer Show Podcast - Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh
Yale study: Genetics, not mom’s behavior, controls abnormal development
As a student at Yale, Julia Katz, a former Yale undergraduate who is now a medical student at Hofstra University, had wrestled with considerable guilt about her twin. She and her brother Jesse are non-identical twins. But Jesse was born underweight with several congenital abnormalities. “She literally felt that she had done this to her brother,” said Dr. Harvey Kliman, a research scientist in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at the Yale School of Medicine.Source: Republican-American
Genetics, not Environment of the Uterus, Controls Abnormal Development
Yale researchers have shown that developmental abnormalities, including those that lead to pregnancy loss and autism, are controlled by the genetics of the fetus and placenta—and not the mother’s intrauterine environment.Source: YaleNews
