Answer: Generally Cord around baby's neck is not a problem for foetus but sometimes create problems for the baby during normal delivery
Babies get their oxygen through the cord, so if the umbilical cord became so compressed that it completely cut off the cord blood flow which usually happens when you get labour contractions and cause fetal distress
To prevent this, doctor would suggest caesarian section instead of normal delivery
Answer: Its very much common.. Dont worry.. Even i had the same issue diring my 8 and half month scan.. But i had a healthy delivery.. So dont worry about it.. Just plan the things for ur baby.. U ll enjoy it
