    Explanation;

    The umbilical cord is the tube that connects an unborn baby to its pregnant mother. It runs from the belly of the fetus to the placenta, and is not directly connected to the mother's circulatory system.

    When the umbilical cord wraps around a baby's neck 360 degrees, it is called a nuchal cord. A nuchal cord may cause harm to a baby, especially if the cord is tight around the neck, wrapped more than once around the neck, or where low amniotic fluid permits cord compression.
