Is it dangerous if the baby comes out with the cord wrapped around her neck?

Snapshot in time: This just means you need to be in close contact.If babies been growing nl this should be ok. I've had healthy infants with up to 5 neck wraps or 2 true knots.

Relax: About 1 in 3 babies have the umbilical cord wrapped around the neck - and complications because of that is very uncommon. There is no recommendation for treating this specific condition.

If the umbilical cord was wrapped around my baby's neck does that mean he was suffocating in the womb?

If the umbilical cord was wrapped around my baby's neck does that mean he was suffocating in the womb?

No: Usually umbilical cords wrapped around the baby's neck in the uterus is loose, and only during the delivery is the cord stretched tighter. So the baby wasn't suffocating in the uterus. ...Read more

Left side neck starts tingling to top of shoulder goes from mild to intense then cramps by artery with acute pain wrapping around to back of the neck ?
