I haven't even heard of it being as common as our situation - usually once the head is out, the doctor or midwife can just take the cord and lift it off the neck.
stay away from google, and don't listen to people tell you you "need" an induction or a c/s! GOod luck!
U mean it can become tight when the baby descends to be born or engages before birth?
I know that the hr will be monitored while in labor but i fear the few weeks left before this.
