Blissful Hospital Birth With Cord Wrapped Around the Neck FOUR Times
The Unassisted Hospital Birth of Clay (graphic)
Umbilical cord is wrapped around baby's neck FIVE times
Above is what midwife or doctor usually does before baby's body is born. As the baby's head crowns she gently feels for a cord with one finger. Mom may never know since it is such a quick maneuver most of the time. Most midwife's will tell mom, "Oh he has a cord", as baby slips out...and that's all there is to it.
O' the birthing woman herself may unwrap the nuchal cord like Rixa Freeze did at the recent birth of Ivy. Here is her short video titled appropriately Q: What if the cord is around the baby's neck?

Cord Around Baby's Neck Is Not an Automatic Emergency
I wish for you a happy baby like this one
