Fortunately, a normal, healthy umbilical cord is protected from blood vessel compression.

Question: Single loop of umbilical cord around the neck at the time of scan is it normal and can i expect normal delivery plz tell me im worried?
Answer: Hello! This is not normal but at the same time nothing to worry about. Make sure you keep the count of the number of movements. If at any point you find the movements less than 10 or the movements very light, please consult the doctor.
A normal delivery can be expected but the doctor will continuously monitor the baby. In case of any risk the doctor might go for emergency C-section.
