Cord around the neck

The presence of a nuchal cord is a very common occurrence during birth. Around a third of all babies are born with the umbilical cord around their neck. How and when it ends up there will be different for individual babies.

Definitely read the part that says 'Risks associated with clamping and cutting a tight nuchal cord'. I wish more OB's followed these guidelines.

What a beautiful video at the end! Look how many times that cord is wrapped around!!!
