A case of intrauterine fetal demise with cord prolapse

L. Thulasi Devi, Gurusamy Prasad

Abstract


A case of intrauterine fetal demise with cord prolapse, presenting to the labour room in active labour. Labour was uneventful; however, it reminds of importance of institutional deliveries, alert midwives, and importance of dedicated obstetric operation theatres and teams to prevent adverse maternal and neonatal outcome.
