Question: If i have single artery umbilical cord??any problem?

1 Answers
Answer: Your baby is likely to be fine. Having only one artery, called a single umbilical artery (SUA), shouldn't affect his health. Usually, an umbilical cord has two arteries, along with a single vein. The vein carries oxygen and nutrients to your baby, and the arteries remove waste products

Question: Are there any complications if a single artery in the umbilical cord is detected?
Answer: Hi dear, Usually, an umbilical cord has two arteries, along with a single vein. The vein carries oxygen and nutrients to your baby, and the arteries remove waste products.but in single umbilical artery as the name says would have one artery instead of two.it is usually not an issue.most of the babies are born healthy and have absolutely no issue.although few percentage of babies with single umbilical artery, there is a higher incidence of poor fetal growth and a slightly increased risk for renal anomalies.my baby had this,and post birth we got her renal scan done,which was normal.and now she's 5 years old and doing absolutely fine.so donot panic.,.,.,

Question: Is therea any further problem if a baby has two vessel cord with single umbilical artery
Answer: hi dear! normally the umbilical cord has 2 arteries and 1 vein. The vein carries oxygenated blood from the placenta to the baby and the arteries carry deoxygenated blood from the baby to the placenta. normally even with 1 artery the pregnancy is good. but the fetal heart beats are to be monitored . so dont worry dear. its just a defect and it wont affect the baby. take care .
