About Us

We believe that every baby deserves a healthy, happy start to life. That's why, at Information About Umbilical Cord Clamping, we've made it our mission to inform parents about optimal clamping time and the benefits to the baby of receiving the baby's own cord blood at birth. Operated by Judith S. Mercer, Ph.D., FACNM, a dedicated midwife educator and researcher, our organization strives to provide soon-to-be parents with the information they need to protect their babies' health.

Dr. Mercer is passionate about helping parents understand the value of cord blood and to properly time cord clamping. She believes that newborns are entitled to reap the continued health benefits of their own cord blood. Inspired by her mission, we provide a list of professionally written publications and other detailed information designed to help you make the best decision for your little one.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
