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

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
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
