Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Umbilical cord prolapse has a reported prevalence of 0.1-0.6%. In previous studies, risk factors for umbilical prolapse have been identified as multiparity, preterm delivery, non-vertex presentation, and obstetric manipulation for labor induction. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the risk factors for umbilical cord prolapse and to determine the factors that may relate to neonatal morbidity in these patients.
