Signs of umbilical cord problems in pregnancy

A mom will not experience any sign of umbilical cord problems. Your doctor may be able to detect some umbilical cord problems during a routine ultrasound. For example, your doctor may see a cord with only one artery, normally the cord will have two arteries. Most umbilical cord problems will not cause any side effects for the baby but some do. Your doctor will let you know if they spot any problems and they will let you know if there are any related risks.
