Cutting Umbilical Cord

Can a husband cut a wifes umbilical cord during birth. assuming the tznius issues are taken care of is there still a problem of negia?

Answer:

There would not be any problem of negia in cutting the umbilical cord. Although even a simple touch (not chiba) of one’s wife is forbidden while she is a niddah, it stands to reason that this cannot be applied to touching the umbilical cord.
