had 20 week ultrasound. midwife reported umbilical cord attached to the membrane of placenta. is this serious?

Please explain ??

Midwives
The umbilical cord arises from the placenta and must be attached for that to happen. Perhaps there is another way to describe your question. If not please call the OB and ask them to explain what they really meant.

heard it's beneficial to leave the umbilical cord attached to baby for 3 to 5 min so blood can go back to baby. True,benefits to doing this? Dangers?

Maybe,maybenot

Blood
The idea is there is baby blood in the placenta & it is a good source of iron. Babies don't make much new blood in the first months so their level starts out higher than adults to begin with & normally falls as baby grows. The problem with this move is you can let too much blood go across & babies blood will be too thick & could lead to kidney damage or stroke. I'd avoid it.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

does it matter how long the umbilical cord on a new born is attached before it is cut off ? Are there pros to having it stay on longer?

Stay longer except

Incision
In general it is better to let it stay longer to allow the blood to return to the fetus, except if the baby has heart defect or low apgar score that needs resuscitation.

What cause an umbilical cord painful?

Confusing question

Baby
I have never had an infant show me convincing evidence of umbilical cord pain.(and they can not tell me) In fact, there are no nerve endings in an umbilical cord so it cannot send pain messages. Perhaps you are thinking about another body part.

What if the umbilical cord doesnt coil?

Not much to worry

Baby
Cords like people come in different shapes and sizes. I am not sure of the context of your question-but if the infant is born normally with a non-coiled cord-I am not concerned at all.

How do I clean my baby's umbilical cord?

Depends

Alcohol
Some institutions use triple dye (purple) on the cord in an effort to avoid germs. This leatherizes the stump and makes separation take longer. Occasional cleaning may be needed to remove grime and thin soapy water or alcohol are fine. If the cord is allowed to air dry, occasional alcohol wipedowns accelerate drying. Bleeding at the base is common as the stump separates.Treat like you would a cut.
