cord wrapped lots
I had my third son born last year underwater at a birth center and I had lots of pre-labor this helped strech his cord he was wrapped two to three times around the neck, twice around his body and around his arm. He never had any distress and I did not do anything extra while pushing him out it just took a few seconds to unwind him before we brought him out of the water.
My second born in a hospital was taking to long to be born
: and they gave me pitocin to help me along and he was born with the cord around twice and they could not get enough room to unloop it and cut it instead before he was out then he was taken to the incubator because he was to cold
: and it was very hard not having him there with me I did not think until later that he could have just been wrapped in a blanket skin to skin with me. My hospital births both had unnessary interfernece that made my birth harder and the out of hospital birth was perfect.
