Is a c-section safer then trying to physically turn a breech baby?

Is a c-section safer then trying to physically turn a breech baby?

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 more

What is the most effective way to make a breech baby turn on it's own?

What is the most effective way to make a breech baby turn on it's own?

Patience: About 95% of babies will be in a vertex (head down) presentation at the time of labor. At 32 to 34 weeks about one third are breech, most will turn before labor. After 35 weeks the chance that the baby will turn is decreasing - the only thing that has been shown to increase the likelihood of a breech baby turning is for the woman to assume a knee chest position for fifteen each day. ...Read more

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 100zs will she turn in 3 weeks 34 5 weeks?

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 100zs will she turn in 3 weeks 34 5 weeks?

Possible: Many breech babies will turn on their own & there are "breech tilt" maneuvers that your OB or certified midwife can teach you. At 37 weeks, ultrasound can confirm fetal position and see if you are a candidate for ecv (external cephalic version). If breech persists despite all measures, current standards are c-section with labor or at 39 weeks. Good luck. ...Read more

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 10ozs 34+5 weeks will she turn in 3 weeks?

Breech baby current estimated weight 6lb 10ozs 34+5 weeks will she turn in 3 weeks?

What DID YOUR OB SAY: If it is your first baby - probably no, sometimes a version can be done to turn baby which has to be done in labor room at 37 weeks cause if something goes wrong u may need an emergency delivery, u may or may not be a candidate for that, but if u were my pt. I would schedule u for a csection at 39 weeks because u need to be delivered before u go into labor and i would do an us thatday to confirm. ...Read more

How to move breech baby on my own?

How to move breech baby on my own?

Some ideas: A position that gets your hips higher than your shoulders can help, either lying on slanted board, or the "knee chest" position with your chest on the bed or floor and your hips up (like small kids sometimes sleep), for 15-20 min at a time, 2-3 times a day. There are acupressure points that seem to help babies move from breech: ask an acupuncturist for help. ...Read more
