Is It Dangerous If The Baby Comes Out With The Cord Wrapped Around Her Neck
Could be: I've had newborns with as many as 5 neck loops or up to 3 true knots in the umbilical cord all grow up & do fine. In both cases monitoring during labor produced heart rate changes that led to a cesarean delivery. Kids without stress patterns during labor have a loose loop & are unlikely to have problems. Sometimes the wrap prevents baby from delivering normally, holding them back like a yoyo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Risks of reaching arms over my head while pregnant is it safe or will my child have the umbilical cord wrapped around its neck?
Not caused by this: The neck wraps are related to fetal movement around 12 wks when the fluid to baby ratio is high. They flip & change positions a bunch. As pregnancy moves on there is more baby than fluid & they can't move as much. I've seen as many as 5 neck wraps in a kid that did well.Holding your arms up has nothing to do with this process. ...Read more
If the umbilical cord was wrapped around my baby's neck does that mean he was suffocating in the womb?
Is it possible that my babies cord is wrapped around his neck he has the hiccups a lot in the womb 2 times a day at least.. Very nervous?
Many do: A neck wrap is common and thought to result around 12 wks when there is more room to flip around.The hiccups are unrelated.I have had healthy infants with as many as 5 wraps and their presence is often noted by poor progress in labor and abnormal changes during labor in the fetal heart rate on the monitor. This rarely causes any issues before the work of labor starts.C-section is often needed. ...Read more
What if swaddling is very tight, and baby moves and wiggles a lot, is it possible for the baby to get brusies from where swaddle is on them?
If so,time to stop: Swaddling is an easy way to transition a newborn from the comfortable "tight"feeling of the womb to the freedom of the crib.But it should be stopped as soon as the kid can adapt to the free felling of the extra room, no later than a month of age.Babies die every year that suffocate in blankets, and the sooner it is gone the better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No.: Not at all. In fact, it's almost guaranteed, given the length of the cord and how little space there is, that the cord is all around the baby. If the cord is in someways compromised, i.e., if it is pinched in there somewhere, it would result in decreased baby movements. You can take an active baby as a good sign. ...Read more
My baby is 4 months old and likes to sit in her walker.She is now pushing it around. Is that bad will it mess up the development of her legs.
If she's in It <10%: Of her waking hours, was full-term & has typical development, probably not. You have to baby-proof your house sooner- especially re: dangling cords to hot appliances, stairs & open doors & monitor her closely. Walkers abduct the hips, not a natural position for walking. Gross (large) motor skills progress head-toe the first year, so tummy time is best for play. " crawl before you walk" is true. ...Read more
Is it possible to hurt the baby/cut of circulation/pinch umbilical cord when lying in a distorted position?
Unlikely to happen: I wouldn't worry about your positions as baby naturally floats the umbilical cord away from confining positions during pregnancy. Rarely, the babies actions get them into trouble. During the 2nd trimester they have more room to flip & some tie true knots in the cord or wrap it around their neck. It's not usually a problem until labor puts stress on the system, but the monitor will pick it up. ...Read more

At 20 week ultrasound they said the cord is attached to the placenta on the side when it should be in the middle.. Is this bad?? They want to monitor
Placental variation: This is a placental variation that is not necessarily "bad" as long as perfusion to and from the fetus is normal and it continues its' growth. Your care team will monitor that situation and look for other fetal variations as well. ...Read more

Needs exam: Can't diagnose over the computer. Would just be a guess.

Let the appropriate pro put all those years of study and experience to work solving your problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it okay to stretch and reach high during pregnancy? I heard it can make the babies umbilical cord wrap around it's neck.
Myth: Most cord wraps occur due to baby's spontaneous movement.Around 12 wks, there is more room/fluid compared to baby size and they can flip and spin a lot.I have seen as many as 5 neck wraps in a normal newborn.Although this can complicate delivery and lead to a c-section, there is nothing you do that will cause or prevent it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
