Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Cord around the baby's neck is common in pregnancy.

There are two types of this condition, type A and type B.

  • Type A is very common and this usually disentangles on its own.
  • Type B is a little serious issue and requires attention.

Type B may form a true knot around the baby's neck and can be an emergency situation causing reduced blood supply to the fetus (ischemia) and reduced oxygen supply to the fetus (hypoxia).
