    The plasma levels of secretin have been measured in mothers after labour, and in their babies at birth and on day 4 of life. The mean cord venous level was higher than the maternal level, and there was a significant correlation between the individual maternal and cord values. The level had again increased by day 4, and at this time the secretin level was inversely proportional to the blood glucose level.
