Dr. Jason H. Collins, founder of The Pregnancy Institute, is the preeminent expert in the world on umbilical cord accidents. Based on his research he believes cord issues, even simple cord compressions, may account for a large portion of stillbirths said to be due to "indeterminable reasons".  Dr. Collins has spent his career studying the role played by umbilical cords in stillbirths. We hope other members of the medical community will put his research to the test.

We believe Dr. Collins is close to a breakthrough that will make it possible to cut the number of stillbirths by one half through the expanded use of fetal heartbeat monitoring at home. The Internet has made such monitoring possible in real time.  Dr. Collins has demonstrated that real time home fetal heartbeat monitoring can spot incipient stillbirths before they progress to fetal demise.  We are proud of the study Dr. Collins did on this and hope it will lead to advancements is saving babies lives.
