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

Common methods for assessing fetal position include vaginal exams, ultrasound, feeling your abdomen, and listening to the baby's heartbeat ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant,had a growth scan and everything measured on time and correctly.The fluid level is good but baby only weighs 4 pounds 13 ounces bad?
