Best Way To Turn A Breech Baby
Moxibustion: I agree with the information that was provided by dr. Herold and dr. Ferguson.

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.

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.

Possible: Many breech babies will turn on their own & there are "breech tilt" maneuvers that your OB or certified midwife can teach you.

What are the chances of a breech baby turning on her own at 36 weeks? If she does not turn, when is the earliest a csection will be scheduled?
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
