As long as you are under good supervision it should be ok.

My son was born with the cord around his neck two times, and he was fine ;)

Re:
My youngest daughter which is 18 months was born with her cord wrapped tightly around her neck. They didn't find out until I was delivering on how tight that it got. To make a long story short the cord caused her to stop breathing when she was born and she had to have cpr to get her started again. But she has had no long term side effects from it. Just remember some cords are longer than others. Your baby might also get the cord unwrapped if it likes to move frequently.

if he wasnt breathing, thats life threatening jess!! Why didnt we ever hear about any of this in your labor story??



Quote unquote from jess's labor story

" id push and his head would be right there and like then go back in! Out of the like 10 ppl in the room the only voice I heard was pauls... He was so helpful! Oh and I heard my mom and all of her "omg omg omg ahhh's!" haha so yeah his head finally slowly started coming out and I kept reaching down to feel him... Then his head was out and finally his shoulders (most babies after their shoulder just like slide out haha nope! I still had quite some pushing to do and he has wide hips) so yeah finally he came out it was the weirdest feeling like when his whole body just flew out... They were like doing a bunch of stuff to him down there and I kept begging to let me hold him she said since he had such a dramatic entrance they had to bring him to the table asap... But brought him upclose for a second and let me kiss him! He was beautiful and so clean he didnt have like any blood on him only water when he came out... Like the blood just repelled off of him it was on his head only... But his feet were blue! "

That is odd, I guess she was really tired after labor/?
But forgetting to mention a cord around the neck and stop breathing.

My little brother was born with the cord around his neck last week, and he was a blue/grey color - elephant color I keep saying. The mid wife cut his cord as soon as she could, but didn't take him away anywhere. He was put straight onto our mothers stomach, and he was fine. After about 5-10 minutes he was almost a normal color with the exception of his fingers and toes, which took a bit longer to color up.
