Delayed Umbilical Cord Clamping Premature Delivery
Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?
Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time.I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately.If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more

Yes : If the hernia is large enough to allow the abdominal organs to go in i the chest during development, they can physically prevent the lung from developing. In its most severe case, rapid death due to inability to get oxygen in to the system can occur immediately after delivery. It is important to understand however that this is not the case for all hernias. See a pediatric surgeon for your details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby died in womb at 40 weeks + 4 days. No umbrical cord wrapping or placenta seperation. Does cephalo pelvic disproportion cause death. ?
Sorry for your loss: Tragically, many fetal deaths after 40 weeks remain unexplained. Cpd means that the baby gets "stuck" after a very prolonged labor. If your baby died before labor started, then it wasn't cpd. If you decide to have another child, give yourself enough time to grieve and heal, and then work closely with a perinatologist (high risk OB specialist) who can do extra specialized testing and monitor well. ...Read more
Sometimes: Abruption is a bleed from the placenta; a disruption of either the mother or baby's blood supply. Many causes: trauma, high blood pressure, drugs (cocaine), preterm labor, polyhydramnios. Can be very large or very small, so even US can miss a diagnosis. Symptoms: usually preterm contractions, sometimes vaginal bleed. Fetal monitoring is necessary. Wait, watch; abruption can self-heal sometimes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could the staples from a previous bilateral femoral/ingnal hernia repair with mesh put a baby or placenta at risk during pregnancy?
Hernia repair: Whether done open or laparoscopic the mesh, tacks, and suture from the hernia repairs will incorporate into your own tissue. Once the healing process is complete then the material utilized for the repair becomes part of your own tissue and pregnancy can go on safely without any risk of the fetus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Women who have a cesarean section must wait a little longer before doing those exercises than a woman who has had a vaginal delivery. With a little work that muscle tone can be regained. ...Read more
Very definitely: Unfortunately, placenta accreta is often diagnosed at the time post delivery when a cotyledon(plug) of placenta is missing or the placenta itself does not detach normally. At that point, aggressive measures to 'detach" the placenta may result in massive hemorrhage and the resultant post apocalyptic diagnosis of placenta accreta. ...Read more
Yes: Babies can be delivered vaginally even over 10 lbs. Some larger babies may cause difficulty with delivery however. Do not rely on the estimated size to determine if the baby can be delivered vaginally as size estimates in the 3rd trimester can be inaccurate. Rely on your obstetrician's experience! ...Read more
