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

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

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

It happens: The space limitations late in pregnancy make position change unlikely at 38 wks, but it happens. Some docs may set up to try a "version" maneuver, to change the position, but this is usually done at the hospital with the operating room ready for an urgent c-section. The maneuver is not without risks for mom and baby. ...Read more

32 weeks pregnant baby still breech. This is my first pregnancy. What are the chances of head down position?

32 weeks pregnant baby still breech. This is my first pregnancy. What are the chances of head down position?

Still Good : Generally, fetal presentation at 32 wks is not indicative of presentation at term, and you have no need to worry at this time. If still breech at 36 weeks gestation, it is likely that the breech will persist. Your provider will discuss the option of version (flipping the fetus) if the breech persists at term. ...Read more
