Cord Prolapse

This is an obstetric emergency. It is commonest if the baby is breech (bottom/legs down) and if the waters go (membranes rupture), the umbilical cord may slip through the cervix and into the vagina. The danger is that it goes into spasm because of the cold; it should not be handled and preferably covered in a warm damp swab until emergency delivery of the baby is performed.)
