    What to expect and check for in a prolapsed umbilical cord.

    1. The client will have a feeling that something is coming through the vagina
    2. The umbilical cord can be seen or felt (visible or palpable)
    3. Irregular and slow fetal heart rate.
    4. After rupture of the membranes, fetal heart monitor shows variable decelerations or bradycardia.
    5. In severe fetal hypoxia, violent fetal activity may occur and then cease.
