Abstract

When we consider the conditions present in the uterus during pregnancy, it should not be a matter of surprise that complications arise, in the relation of the movable contents, but rather that such complications are not more frequent. There is a developing fetus with more or less freedom of movement floating in an ovoid sac of fluid, and attached at its center by a long loose cord to the uterine wall. Let it not be forgotten that the permeability of this rope of blood vessels is at all times essential to fetal existence, and if the evidence of the prospective mother is to be accepted, this selfsame fetus is seldom still, day or night, during the latter half of intrauterine life. I agree with the statement of obstetric writers that once in every five or six labors this cord is found looped about some portion of the newborn infant, usually
