hi nidhi, my daughter had 2 loops around her neck a week before her birth and she herself resolved it and I had a normal delivery. don't panic... just go with the doctors advice.... it all depends on the situation then and there.... wish you luck and a healthy baby ahead

hi Nidhi.. i faced the same problem a few days amd had a normal delivery . my baby had a tight loop of cord around his neck and we planned for a cesarean, but i got natural labour pains and with constant monitoring of baby's heartbeat, i had a normal delivery. You can still have a normal delivery if 1. the cord around the baby's neck is loose. 2. baby has the strength to withstand the delivery i. e heart beat should not drop and maintain at 140 and above. 3. though my baby had the cord tight around the neck, it was long enough that he could come out. If you want a risk less delivery then go for cesarean.

Hi Nidhi, sorry to disappoint you but in a case like this normal delivery is not advised, as it can be life threatening to the foetus and mother both. Just relax, follow the doctor's advice and don't worry about the procedure of delivery.

Hi Nidhi, not very sure but chances are lesser for normal delivery in this case, but do not worry just pray for happy healthy baby.
