During my 32 week pregnancy USS, a single loop cord was detected around foetus neck. What are the complications that could arise? Is there any danger? Is C section preferred in such cases?

Hello, If the cord is loose and foetal heart rate and growth is normal then a vaginal delivery trial can be offered, but if during about there s no descent of presenting part and there is foetal distress then c-section would be the best.
Single loop amy unwind during labour or C.S will be needed.
