Hello ladies
I'm Lana,new to the board but not to JM.I'm due on the 12th of Feb.

I was wondering what's ur opinion on vaginal birth with already dx nuchal cord.I was told that my girl might have her cord around her neck or the shoulder.They checked for the blood flow once at 33 weeks (i'm 37 now) and it was normal...
Recently someone told me that it might choke my baby when she will engage her head in the pelvis and that i need to ask for induction or C-section at once.

My doctors aren't concerned at all but i've heard MANY horor stories
Is it true that it causes troubles when the baby engages?Mine still isn't but she's pretty low.

Should i talk to my doctor about having any kind of intervention coz of the cord placement or it's something that happens very often?

What would u suggest?Has anyone here ever had experience with nuchal cord or cord loops?

Thank you
