Baby Turned Breech Position C Section Pregnancy
Is it possible to have the baby turned out of the breech position if I had a c-section in my last pregnancy?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
If till 35 or 36 wk of pregnancy baby is in breech position. Can baby still change its position. Can verginial delivery possible in breech babies?
Im 19 weeks and 2 days and my baby is in a breech position will I have o get a c-section or can I deliver vaginal?
Yes if version fails: Among breech babies, >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks spontaneously. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME. All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Safer for baby.: There is no question that a prelabor cesarean section is safer for the fetus than attempted external cephalic version and trial of labor. Having said that, however, a cesarean section is slightly more dangerous for the mother than a successful vaginal delivery (one excess death per 10, 000 births), although one can never accurately predict which women will have a successful trial of labor. Talk 2ob. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No time soon do I plan to have baby #2 but, what are my chances of having a VBAC after a c-section due to a breech baby & Preeclampisa?
Pretty good: The breech presentation is almost a sure c-section since the head is the largest body part to travel the birth canal & getting stuck is a disaster.Vaginal delivery after c-section is routine in most delivery centers but usually done with a surgical suite nearby if the need to switch to c-section becomes necessary.If your pelvic structure & baby size are normal this is likely to happen. ...Read more
What happens if your baby is both extremely large and breech, is it safer to have him naturally or by c-section?
You decide: The head is part with the largest dimension that needs to transit the birth canal. In practice, if the feet come first, there is no guarantee that the head will. ( they can & do get stuck) If head first, feet and umbilical cord come after with plenty of room. Feet first, the head can also compress the umbilical cord like a tourniquet so baby gets no oxygen= likely brain damage. Answer should be ez ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: There is a procedure called an external cephalic version. An experienced physician uses his or her hands to gently move the baby into the correct position. A few years ago a medical study showed than vaginal breech delivery was more dangerous than a c section. Vaginal breech deliveries are not done often anymore. Ask if you are a candidate for external version. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

15 days pp C-section delivery due to breech position. Pain, numbness and reduced mobility in hands and feet when I wake up.. Should I be concerned?
Positional Numbness: Your symptoms are likely due to you not moving much when you sleep due to your incisional pain. When you stay in one position you place pressure on the nerves and they " go to sleep" resulting in the symptoms you describe. Once you get moving or change positions those symptoms go away. If they do not then see your doctor. As you get further out from surgery and move more at night it will improve. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Late 30s. Can i somehow avoid C-section for this and the 2 next pregnancies i'm hoping for? Really want to labor & have vaginal delivery for my babies
VBAC: If you've never had a c-section, then unless there is trouble during delivery then vaginal birth should be expected. If you've had a previous c-section then there is controversy about following deliveries and the safety of a vaginal birth. Many obs will default for repeat c-sections because the risk of uterine rupture and other serious complications are high in subsequent pregnancies. ...Read more

I was in csection with my first child beacause of breech is there any way possible for me to have a normal delivery on my 2nd child?Im 7 wiks preggy
Is a vbac really safer than a c section. I have had 4 kids all vaginal except last one 20 months ago.He was breech..Im 6 months pregnant now..
Safer for whom: Vbac's are very controversial in medicine. At one point almost no one was delivering vaginally after c/s. Now more are performed. For mom clearly the risks are greater for vbac. C/s generally safe. However emergent research is showing benefits for babies born vaginally including reduced asthma and allergies. The decision should really be made with OB based on your personal risks. ...Read more
My daughter is 9 months, I had csection w/ her due to her being a breech baby. Can I try vbac? There might be a possibility that I might be pregnant.
You can try,: I would recommend waiting until your daughter's first birthday to attempt future pregnancies. You should talk to your obstetrician about trial of labor after cesarean section (tolac), taking into account that the risks associated with it can only be offset by future pregnancies. If you want only one more pregnancy i would recommend repeat cesarean section and bilateral tubal ligation (btl). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
