In a car crash at 35 weeks pregnant. Prior to, baby was cephalic, post it was breech. What is the likelyhood of the crash (from behind) being the cause?

Probably unknown: In order to know the likelihood of a fetus switching from cephalic to breech due to a car crash, researchers would have to collect information on many similar crashes involving similar women at similar weeks of pregnancy, and count the number of "switches". They would then have to compare that data to the number of "switches" that occur in a group of very similar women, but who had no car crashes. ...Read more

Breech Presentation (Definition)

If your baby is breech, his bottom is the part of his body closest to the birth canal. No one is sure what causes a breech presentation, but it happens in 3% to 5% of single-baby deliveries. As your pregnancy nears full term, your caregiver will check your baby's position during regular prenatal visits. Common methods for assessing fetal position include vaginal exams, ultrasound, feeling your abdomen, and listening to the baby's heartbeat ...Read more

I am 29 weeks pregnant my baby is breech at the moment  I am getting strong pains at the top of my bump and feel really sick any idea what it could be?

Preterm Labor: Any time you have strong pain, especially at 29 weeks, you have to go to l&d to rule out preterm labor. Go get monitored, examined, & then your doc can evaluate & treat your other symptoms. Don't delay & take care. ...Read more

I am 31 weeks pregnant with a very bad lower back ache that hurts when I walk.. I keep getting random bursts of sharp pains in my vagina, my baby is breech and I am finding it very uncomFortable?

Pregnancy: Yes, pregnancy can be uncomfortable at times, especially as you get further along. I am guessing that you have been seeing your OB regularly and all is well? Get their "okay" to try a prenatal yoga class, or get a prenatal massage to help with the low back pain. ...Read more

Can baby kicks on the cervix dilate or efface it? My baby is breech and i feel like she's slaughtering me down there. 22w6d pregnant

Can baby kicks on the cervix dilate or efface it? My baby is breech and i feel like she's slaughtering me down there. 22w6d pregnant

No trap door: Your designer considered many contingencies in how to carry on the lineage. Jumping jacks and judo should be tolerable without difficulty. Should ask your ob, who might review your u/s just to be sure placenta also not low/previa, which might pose a theoretical concern. Happy baby. Sorry for the pain! ...Read more

In a pregnancy where the baby is breech, does the doctor try to invert the baby's position?

In a pregnancy where the baby is breech, does the doctor try to invert the baby's position?

Maybe: You can either do a version or most likely for what is best for you have an elective c/s for breech. Some patients depending on the number of previous deliveries might even attempt a vaginal delivery. Talk with you OB and a plan of action between you and your OB can be determined. ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant and baby is breeched is there anything i can do to jump start labor?

36 weeks pregnant and baby is breeched is there anything i can do to jump start labor?

Why?: You probably aren't going to find a lot of OB docs willing to suggest you jump start labor at 36 week nor with being breech. Neither is a good idea as you are still preterm and most OB providers don't do breech vaginal birth anymore. Have you discussed if you are a candidate for external cephalic version? This a procedure where the doctor attempts to turn baby back to head down. ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant first baby, is there a chance that she changes from a breech position? Have been doing several exercises over the past few weeks

38 weeks pregnant first baby, is there a chance that she changes from a breech position? Have been doing several exercises over the past few weeks

Possible!: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a version to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read more

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
