Baby in Breech Position
Created by Updated on Apr 17, 2017
Hi All, I am 30 weeks Pregnant and my baby is in breech position. I am very active through all out preganacy. I do lot of walking and all household like moping the floor etc. But still baby head is not moving down. Also acc. to the ultrasound growth of the baby is delayed by 2 weeks. Can anyone suggest what can I do so that the baby comes to its normal position. Its my first pregnancy and doesn't want to go through the C-Section delivery. Thanks in advance.

Himali.... the same situation & thought I have faced for my pregnancy.. mine was @ breech position... sometimes I have to be frank on this but still you have time for delivery I am hoping almost you have 5-6 weeks for ur due.... there are 3 types complete, footled and Frank.. of these we can hope our best for normal delivery in case of footled.. but 90% of chances goes wit C-sec.. check ur fluid level don't let it very less & abundant, try to keep it moderate level... hear songs by placing phone or i-pod on ur stomach where head is.. sleep on sidewards where you feel baby's head face facing downwards... go for walk... besides all of these measures have a mindset tat it's more better to have a baby in hands safely but not matters on mode of delivery.... most of the breech position will not have normal delivery... the active proof is me.. I made a mindset & was getting ready for c-sec, even till last minute my baby's position didn't change @ last delivered by c-sec... bcos baby's legs @ bottom may break our water @ anytime & we wud full of risk behind this scenario... first of all think abt ur baby safe outcome & ur health... don't confuse urself too muc.... all the best dear

Thanks Dharani... It's of great help. yes, you are right baby health is more imp. not the mode of delivery. Water level is adequate and will take care of that. although doc said in first pregnancy it's difficult that baby changes its position in later stage. but I still have time hoping for the best and will definitely make my mind for any situation comes on my way.. Thanks again. :)

Hi Himali Jain To improve ur situation u can use these two not invasive and gentle methods.... Music: Certain sounds may appeal to your baby. Place headphones or a speaker at the bottom of your uterus to encourage them to turn. Temperature: Like music, your baby may respond to temperature. Try placing something cold at the top of your stomach where your baby’s head is. Then, place something warm (not hot) at the bottom of your stomach.
