It's actually VERY common for baby's to have their cords around their neck. In fact, 1 in 3 baby's are born with a nuchal cord wrapped around their neck. Fortunately, the vast majority of the time it causes NO problems at all during the pregnancy or birth. Exceptions occur, but they are the rarity. Nature designed the cords in such a way that they seldom become problematic. Unfortunately, tv likes to play on this scenario as some emergent near death event, because suspense is what gets the views.
