This incredible image I took recently. I was in awe of how beautiful this placenta and umbilical cord was.
What I’m showing you is a Velamentous cord insertion, which is when the umbilical cord inserts into the membranes not the chorionic plate of the placenta.
This ‘can’ be a dangerous situation especially if there is an artificial ruptured of membranes, but in this case mum and babe we perfectly fine and in safe, professional, experienced care. The vessels look strong and are also in close proximity to the edge of the placenta.
Needless to say the cord keepsake was spectacular
