Hi I am in the onset of my eighth month and in the Doppler study of ultrasound it was found that there is a single loop cord around the baby s neck because of which blood supply to the baby is short. Please advice if there is any danger? What can be done to untangle it and prevent it in future. I would prefer a normal delivery.

Hi, I am 36 weeks pregnant. All my reports have been fine considering baby weight, amniotic fluid & doppler flow. However, my last ultrasound a couple of days ago showed the baby in a head up position with a single loop of cord around neck. Can I still have a normal delivery? can the baby turn on its own in due course of time to engage in head down position, before my delivery date which is 14th Feb.?

Hi Sir / Madam, we have couple of queries related to our baby. My wife is in pregnancy of 36 weeks (Age: 35 years and height: 5feet, 4 inches and weight: 76 kgs. Fetal weight: 2.8 Kgs) and recently we did Doppler scanning test (same as Ultrasound), in this we have observed couple of results as follows. 1. Mild Pelviectasis of fetal kidneys seen AP Diameter of left renan pelvis 5.1 mms AP Diameter of right renan pelvis 2.9 mms 2. single loop of cord is seen around fetal neck. My wife age is 35 years and for my wife it is first pregnancy. In her 3rd month she undergone threatened Abortion, but it got recovered completely and now it is in 36 weeks. As per the first result will there be any concerns to our baby after the birth. The doctor suggested it will be common and not to worry, sometimes it get correct after the deliveries or after 8 days (or 3 months) need to do ultrasound scanning to the baby. Really worried about it. As per the second result (single loop of cord is seen around fetal neck), will there be any issue to my wife and baby at the time delivery. We belive normal delivery will be good, but still C-section will be better option in this case. Please can you suggestion on it. Please let us know your suggestions and feedback in this case. Thanks.
