It's completely detached or is it only attached by 2 vessels? Can't say that I've ever heard of a complete detachment.

You man this?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velamentous_cord_insertion



the umbilical cord MUST be attached. It's kind of essential.



In a velmantous insertion, the cord doesn't attach directly to the placenta. The vessels run through the membranes first.



It's a problem if it's combined with placenta previa, and is a problem if your care provider uses cord traction to deliver the placenta after your baby is born (cord might snap= lots of blood) but in many many cases, this cord insertion isn't noticed at all until after a happy, healthy baby is born.
