The maternal babies who were pregnant for 36+3 weeks did not feel the obvious fetal movements in one morning. The doctors in her mind flashed her words: Go home and pay attention to the number of fetal movements, and find that the fetal movement suddenly becomes frequent or decreases. It may be hypoxia. At this time, it is necessary to return to the hospital for examination. She worried that the baby would be deprived of oxygen, so she rushed back to the hospital to listen to the fetal heart and do a B-ultrasound examination. Sure enough, the fetal heart rate is relatively slow, and the B-ultrasound indicates that the umbilical cord is twisted and long tubular echo. Considering the intrauterine distress and umbilical cord torsion, the hospital will terminate the pregnancy by emergency cesarean section. Fortunately, early in discovery, this naughty bear child's umbilical cord twisted for 46 laps, just like "twist", he was slightly suffocated at birth, and recovered after a simple rescue of the baby! If you find it later, the consequences will be unimaginable.


The umbilical cord is an important bridge connecting the baby to the placenta, but sometimes the umbilical cord will also be associated with the fetus. The baby is awkward and the umbilical cord is twisted. This is an abnormal situation that threatens the baby's health. How does umbilical cord torsion occur, and how to prevent it during pregnancy?

What is the umbilical cord twist?

The umbilical cord twist means that the umbilical cord rotates and twists along the longitudinal axis. Just like twisting the twine, it can return to normal as long as it rotates in the opposite direction. The umbilical cord torsion is related to fetal activity. Under normal circumstances, the umbilical cord can be twisted. The physiological torsion can reach 6-11 weeks. Generally, it is not dangerous. However, if the torsion is too much or too dense, the blood circulation will be interrupted. Relief will soon result in fetal death.


Cause of umbilical cord torsion

The real cause of umbilical cord torsion, currently medically It has not been clearly identified that some scholars believe that it may be related to umbilical cord dysplasia. Another scholar believes that the umbilical cord torsion is related to the maternal condition and the sex of the fetus. It is believed that the maternal abdominal wall is slack, which is convenient for fetal activities. The male fetus has a large degree of activity and is prone to twisting. Some scholars believe that the phenomenon of torsion occurs after the death of the fetus.

How to prevent umbilical cord twist?

1, adhere to the number of fetal movements. From the 28th week of pregnancy, expectant mothers should pay attention to fetal movement changes, and insist on several fetal movements every day. Once you find that the number of fetal movements is lower than normal, you should go to the hospital in time.


2, try to keep your left sleeping position. The left lateral position can reduce the pressure of the uterus against the mother's abdominal aorta and maintain the blood flow of the normal uterine artery.

3, don't sit for a long time. Sitting for a long time inactivity can easily affect the blood circulation of the whole body. The compression of the pelvis forces the blood circulation of the uterus to be poor, which not only affects the expectant mother itself, but also is not good for the baby.

4, oxygen. If the umbilical blood flow value is high, you can try to inhale oxygen in a nearby hospital. Oxygen inhalation for 1 hour a day can alleviate the chest tightness and improve the fetal hypoxia.


The umbilical cord torsion is an emergency in the uterus, so far medically It is impossible to detect the symptoms early, but pregnant mothers can monitor the condition of the fetus in the uterus through several fetal movements, at least three times a day, one hour per time, and normal fetal movement 3-5 times per hour. When the fetal movement is abnormal, the patient will be returned to the hospital early to save the life of the fetus.
