This occurrence is called nuchal cord, recorded in 12% Of pregnancies 24-26 weeks, and 37% of pregnancies full term and is usually caused when the fetus has a lot of movement in the womb.
Li Hua, Director of Obstetrics said, “I have been working for 23 years, and this is the first time I have seen an umbilical cord wrapped around a baby’s neck like this."
