Double the knot - double the trouble!
Two true umbilical cord knots!
A cord knot is exactly what the term sounds like — a knot in the baby's umbilical cord.
True knot of the umbilical cord is a very rare condition and usually is noticed after delivery and does not lead to problems. It is relatively less common than the other umbilical cord anomalies.
A normal umbilical cord contains two arteries and one vein. Wharton’s jelly is a special substance contained within the umbilical cord which serves to protect the vessels from trauma by acting as a cushion. A true umbilical knot develops when a fetus slips through a loop in the umbilical cord.
The most common symptom of a true knot is reduced fetal activity after 37 weeks and intrauterine growth restriction.
Cord knot itself is rarely a problem but an associated tightening leading to an umbilical cord knot is a concern where arterial compromise can cause severe complications such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.
The main risk factors for a knot to develop are multiple pregnancy including twins, a long umbilical cord, fetuses that are small for their gestational age, polyhydramnios, and monozygotic twins.
Diagnosis of a true knot includes routine ultrasound examination during pregnancy, color Doppler ultrasound, examination of the placenta and umbilical cord during delivery.

If magical natural wonders are your destination, then your passport has been stamped 💦 •••
Despite being so close geographically to Niagara Falls on numerous occasions in the past, it took me until now (when I had the added reason of visiting my friends in Toronto) to actually visit. Why? Because although my heart will always chase waterfalls, it seemed like this wonder of Mother Nature had been transformed by capitalism into a sort of theme park which broke my heart a little. •••
The first time I visited Niagara Falls it was during the hours of the early evening. It made my blood shudder not in amazement of the power of Mother Nature but due to being overwhelmed by the sheer number of people around me. •••
The second time I visited Niagara Falls was during the early hours of the morning just before sunrise. There was no Maid of the Mist cruise commercialising the Falls, no cars honking horns in a rush to get to the Falls, no tourists constantly clicking cameras to capture a moment they were not even experiencing - just you hundreds of thousands of litres of water falling and a heck load of seagulls. This is the Niagara Falls that I flew across the word to see. This is the Niagara Falls that you NEED to see. 💦
