A cord knot is precisely what the term implies—a knot in the baby’s umbilical cord.
Keeping an eye out for potential signs of an umbilical cord knot is prudent, allowing you to promptly inform your healthcare practitioner
Increased Mobility: A longer umbilical cord provides greater mobility for the baby within the amniotic sac.
– Twisting and Coiling: The extended length of the cord allows for more twisting and coiling, providing ample opportunities for knots to develop during the baby’s movements.
Reduced Amniotic Fluid: SGA babies are often associated with reduced amniotic fluid levels.
