Numbskull obstetrics in Albania

Hilary Butler - Thursday, May 27, 2010

Just when you think sanity might prevail, and you write a blog about one doctor with a brain, everything implodes. I decided to do a pubmed search, just to double check when stem cells were first found in cord blood. The answer to that is around 2000 if you count the lag to publish. Then I did a check on third stage cord clamping management, and came across this 2010 article, which exemplifies everything I dislike about obstetric practice in 2010. Continue Reading


Wait to clamp umbilical cord, study says

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Hurrah, a doctor finally sees the blindingly obvious! In a study entitled “Wait to clamp umbilical cord, study says” Paul R. Sanberg from South Florida College of Medicine, is the first person I know of, who has finally published what I’ve been saying for years. Which equates to “Don't clamp the newborn’s umbilical cord!” His reason is that cord blood gives the baby its first infusion of stem cells which could help regenerate any underdeveloped organs.  And do a whole heap of other things too.  I’m glad he said that. But here’s my problem. Why didn’t all these medical people who have called cord blood “medical waste” and set up cord banks specifically to save those stem cells, see that? Isn’t it somewhat blindingly obvious? My first published article on delaying cord clamping was in the New Zealand Home Birth Magazine which was then reproduced in the New Zealand Association of Midwives Newsletter. An American magazine called “Mothering” published it in 1986. 24 years ago. My second “rant” on this topic was last year, as part of a talk. Continue Reading


Ignrance is not bliss: serious Hepatitis B vaccine questions

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Recently, I was contacted by a young woman about to complete her midwifery qualifications.  She had delivered a baby whose young mother was a hepatitis B carrier.  This young aspiring midwife had recently returned a negative blood test for Hepatitis B antibodies,  Immediately, concerns had been raised that she may have been exposed to surface antigen from the baby's skin. I started asking questions, like, "Well, was this young mother vaccinated?" and... "Was she just surface antigen positive, or was she core antigen positive and therefore actively infectious?" then... "What information were you given to prove that hepatitis B surface antigen is littered all over this baby's skin?" and..  "Were you vaccinated with the Hepatitis B vaccine?" Continue Reading


Callous Disregard - "antivaccine ... having a field-day".

Hilary Butler - Sunday, April 25, 2010

Utterly gobsmacking. A doctor, who thinks the Swine flu vaccine programme unnecessary, is more concerned that the anti-vaccine movement is having a field day, because the Australian flu vaccine is causing high fevers and seizures with at least one kiddo in ICU?  Hello?  Wake up mate.  Just WHO is it that parents of children affected by vaccines in any country, usually end up turning to, when your little (uncessary) ideas turn to custard, eh?!!    By and large, unless the medical profession actually has to do something to try to save a child's life, parents whose children suffer vaccine reactions usually have the surgery door slammed on their backsides, as they walk out with the typical comment of denial, ringing in their ears... "It's coincidental!" Continue Reading


The Autism Great Divide: Blind conformity of mindsets

Hilary Butler - Sunday, April 04, 2010

This study is the latest marvelous words of wisdom from the medical profession who have decided that the increase in autism can’t possibly ... really .... be due to any specific virus, toxicity or any other moronic idea from people whose kids have regressed after vaccination .... or whose mother's bodies were loaded to the hilt during pregnancy with epigenetic toxins some of which prescribed, administered and approved of by the medical profession… oh no. Heaven forbid… the reason… . Continue Reading
