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

WURD Podcast: Information Is The Best Medicine
Dr. Harvey J. Kliman, Research Scientist at the Yale School of Medicine, joined the program to talk about Autism and the Placenta. Some recent research raises the possibility that analyzing the placenta after birth may provide clues to a child’s risk for developing autism.Source: WURD Radio
