  • from them moving so much it just kinda happens my dr said.. he said they twist and turn so much that it could get wrapped around the neck thats why drs have you stop pushing when the head comes out one to suck all the stuff out of their nose and mouth and to make sure the cord isnt around the neck

  • My daughter was born with the cord wrapped around her neck three times LOOSELY. My doctor said he had never seen an umbilical cord so long. Don't stress about it.
