Cord around the neck  slows down blood flow to the baby for a brief time. If conditions worsen you may even need a cesarean to keep the baby healthy. Most babies quickly pass through this stage and normal blood flow resumes, allowing a normal birth.  cord around the neck at delivery in about thirty percent of all births.
