Re: Has anyone ever heard of this???

What it is, if you lift over your head to much supposedly you wrap the baby's umbibical cord around their neck. This is not true though. I asked my OB about this and she said that 1 in 3 babys will have their around their neck. Mostly how this happens is the baby is pulling on it and stretches the cord out and with them moving about they end up getting it wrapped. It's something so common that it's really nothing to worry about.
