Umbilical Cord Compression, Anterior Cut-away View

Birth Injury - Umbilical Cord Compression. Dramatic enlarged cut-away view of the mother's pelvis as the infant descends in the birth canal through the effaced cervix. The umbilical cord is shown compressed between the baby's head and the uterus, with the portion of the cord below the constriction depicted in a light gray color, indicating the lack of oxygenated blood flowing to the fetus. This condition results in compromised oxygen flow to the baby and can lead to ischemia, hypoxia and death.
