I have a friend who's sisters cord broke with her first. Baby delivered and as doctor started to move baby up the cord desintegrated. Doc clamped baby (right at belly, was barely room to clamp) and threw (literally) him to the nurse and jumped for mom. Both were fine, cord was normal length, just fell apart after birth. In this case it was definitely due to moms diet. This is a woman who, when I met her and her kids, I thought her oldest had lost his first two teeth already at age 4, only to find out that they were still there just had been dissolved by juice and kool aid in his bottle (yes, was still using one) and were down to the gum line. If that's the way his health was at the time, I can only imagine moms during pregnancy.
