Answer: Most babies' umbilical cords have three blood vessels: one vein, which brings nutrients from the placenta tobaby, and two arteries that bring waste back to the placenta. But a two-vessel cord has just one vein and one artery— that's why the condition is also referred to as having a single umbilical artery.Your baby is likely to be fine. Having only one artery, called a single umbilical artery (SUA), shouldn't affect his health. Hope this helps.
