1st was a shade of purple-blue and his cord was wrapped around his neck 3 times . He was coated with white matter which I learned were calcium deposits due to his being 2 weeks late .
He was born at 11:11 on 3-11 and he has major psychic abilities that have much traumatic influences and deserve healing .
Targeted because of our very strong connection, I pray for his blessings and healing ❤️🩹
This is something that comes up with all of my clients.
It’s another fear that has been driven into us from the media and shared stories.
👉 Nuchal cords are a variation of normal and rarely cause a problem.
🤔 What if i told you that nuchal cords are as common as 1/3 of all pregnancies.
👉 It looks pretty scary to see something wrapped around a babies neck but we have to remember they don’t breathe through their lungs, they get oxygen and blood through the cord.
👉 Ok, but what about the cord being compressed and stopping that?
👊 Well, natures got you covered.
The cord is covered in a jelly substance called Wharton’s Jelly.
👉 This is there to protect the veins and arteries in the cord. To stop them from being compressed and it does a fantastic job and means that the cord can squish into all sorts of amazing things including knots without causing a problem.
👉 In fact, the cord being around the babies neck is a good thing. If it were around the babies head it would get squashed coming out from under the pubic bone as this is a tight squeeze.
So it being tucked under the chin around the neck is actually a great way of stopping this from happening.
👉 Once born you (or your midwife) can easily slip the cord over your babies head, sometimes doing a somersault flip on the way out.
✨I keep saying it, natures unbelievably clever and thinks of everything.
