When the umbilical cord slips out of the cervix before the head or the breech, this is a true obstetrical emergency. The cord is the baby's life supply and when it is out of the uterus it is vulnerable to compression, spasm, occlusion which can compromise the baby's blood and oxygen supply.   In the episode, we discuss topic what happens in cord prolapse, how the baby is usually completely fine in acute care settings and why cesarean birth isn't the only solution to cord prolapse. ,
