Baby Gives Back: The Fetus Is Capable Of Saving Mom’s Life

It has been known for some time that during pregnancy, the placenta enables a two-way trafficking of immune cells between mother and fetus. Some of the exchanged cells are capable of establishing long-lasting cell lines that persist for at least half a century after birth and are immunologically active.

Known as microchimerism, two genetically distinct and separately derived populations of cells are present in the same individual or organ. While it can occur artificially, as with recipients of blood transfusions or bone marrow transplants, it occurs naturally during most pregnancies. For instance, approximately 50-75% of women after giving birth carry fetal immune cells,[1] and about half as many offspring carry maternal immune cells.

The bidirectional fetomaternal trafficking of cells through the placenta is known as “fetal microchimerism” when moving in the fetal -> maternal direction, and “maternal microchimerism” when moving in the maternal -> fetal direction.

While much of the focus on this phenomenon in the past 15 years has been on the possible pathological role that these fetal cells play in contributing to autoimmune diseases in the mother, i.e. the “bad microchimerism” proposed by Nelson JL in 1996,[2] a more positive perspective is beginning to emerge, also known as the “good microchimerism” hypothesis, which “…suggests that persistent fetal cells, instead of inducing a maternal immune response, provide a rejuvenating source of fetal progenitor cells that may have the capacity to participate in maternal tissue repair processes.”[3]

Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2004 and titled “Transfer of fetal cells with multilineage potential to maternal tissue,” researchers discussed the role that fetal microchimerism may play in responding to maternal injury by developing multilineage capacity in maternal organs.  They found evidence that male fetal microchimeric cells had differentiated into maternal epithelial tissues (thyroid, cervix, intestine and gallbladder,” indicating their stem-cell like qualities and the possibility that they were contributing to repair and/or regeneration of those injured maternal tissues.[4]

More recently (2012), the journal Circulation Research published a remarkable article titled “Fetal cells traffic to injured maternal myocardium and undergo cardiac differentiation,” which investigated the possible explanatory role that fetal microchimerism has in the clinical observation of the high rate of recovery from heart failure in peripartum (occurring during the last month of gestation or the first few months after delivery) cardiomyopathy patients.[5]  Their stated objective was to “…determine whether fetal cells can migrate to the maternal heart and differentiate to cardiac cells.”  The researchers reported the following results:

“We report that fetal cells selectively home to injured maternal hearts and undergo differentiation into diverse cardiac lineages. Using enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP)-tagged fetuses, we demonstrate engraftment of multipotent fetal cells in injury zones of maternal hearts. In vivo, eGFP+ fetal cells form endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and cardiomyocytes.”

This astounding discovery indicates that fetal stem cells are capable of differentiating into a variety of heart cell types, including “beating cardiomyocytes,” and which may heal the mother’s physical heart.

Baby Saves Mom's Life

It appears that Nature made it possible for the unborn offspring of mammals to save their mother’s lives by contributing stem cells which are capable of grafting into tissues, including bone marrow, potentially providing a lifelong source of new healthy cells to replace damaged or dysfunctional ones.

In a future article we will be investigating the role of placental stem cells in explaining the phenomenon of placentaphagy, i.e. the near universal practice of mammals consuming the placenta of their young.

Vaccine-autism connection: I stand with the mothers

Since the controversy surrounding vaccines causing autism has resurfaced with the release of the explosive film, Vaxxed (trailer), I want to make a few things clear.

First of all, statements from the CDC and “the entire scientific community,” refuting any causal connection, are all based on the sacred status of published studies.

So again, here is what the former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine wrote, in 2009, about this holy of holies:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” —(Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)

There is nothing holy or even believable about “the truth is in the published studies.”

Here is an excerpted statement from a mother. I put more stock in it than a hundred studies exonerating vaccines. The mothers know, and they are being pushed off to the side, in order to protect the vaccine manufacturers and the medical powers-that-be:

“…immediately after my son received his 18 month shots he spiked a high fever, was listless and began to scream. I called the nurse line informing them of his symptoms and my concern for a reaction to the jab, they said, ‘give him Tylenol.’…within 72 hours he began to lose words, eye contact, became sensitive to light, noise touch. He began to self limit, eating only milk and toast and I watched my baby disappear into a hell promoted and created by big pharma…

“The first doctor I raised concerns to told me, ‘oh he’s just two, give him whatever he wants and he’ll stop crying’…I spent the next five years researching everything I could find and I exhausted myself, determined to get my baby back…while he slept praying to God to not let him wake and feel the pain, to please let him come back…Some days he would want me to take him in the car in the dark garage and just hold him tight. He would get up every morning and stand at the top of the stairs and scream because his sensory systems were destroyed, so I would have to carry him down the stairs…[at night he would watch movie[s] over and over until Six am drinking milk, eating toast. Each time the movie ended he would scream until I put it [the movie] in again. Finally at sunrise he would sleep…This went on for years.
