If umbilical cord is wrapped around the baby's neck will it create problem in normal delivery?
It is very common for the umbilical cord to wrap around a baby's neck. Often times your doctor doesn't even know the cord is wrapped around your baby's neck until the baby's head is being delivered during childbirth. During labor and delivery if you baby is showing any signs of distress your doctor may be concerned that a cord is wrapped around your neck. If your baby is showing serious signs of distress and your doctor is concerned they might recommend a c-section. Sometimes the cord is wrapped just once and sometimes it is more. The cord might be wrapped loose or tight. Some cords are longer than others. All of these factors play a role in whether or not you will have problems during a vaginal delivery. Usually you will only be able to tell if there is a problem or not is during labor itself.
