Do breech babies carry congenital defects?

Do breech babies carry congenital defects?

Rarely: Rarely does this happen where babies have congenital defects that are severe enough that they either neurological impair the baby and prevent movement or simply get in the way of a baby being able to flip on its own. This is a rare cause of breech though. ...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?

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?

Breech presentation: At 35-36 weeks there is still time for your baby to flip and become cephalic (head first). However after 38 weeks or so, it is very unlikely that your baby will flip. If your baby is breech at that time, a c-section is usually scheduled. ...Read more

What causes breech and malpresentation of baby in the womb, while having fibroadenomas on the breast?

What causes breech and malpresentation of baby in the womb, while having fibroadenomas on the breast?

Breech: Breast fibroid enigmas having nothing to do with your baby's position. Most breech or malpositioned babies are there just by chance. Occasionally an abnormal shape of the inside of the uterus will make breech more common. Also, fibroid tumors in the uterus can alter the shape of the uterine cavity making breech/malpositioned more likely. About 3% of babies will be breech at delivery. ...Read more

Is external cephalic version dangerous for baby or mom? Could it cause issues with unbiblical cord? I'm 36 weeks with a breech baby. Any advice?

Is external cephalic version dangerous for baby or mom? Could it cause issues with unbiblical cord? I'm 36 weeks with a breech baby. Any advice?

Version aversion?: Version (turning a baby from a breech presentation to vertex (head down)) is not without risk. And you are correct; umbilical cord compression or kinking can occur. This is why your baby is monitored throughout the procedure. Version is not always successful, i.e., babies can flip back. And it may be uncomfortable. It can, however, increase your chance of having a vaginal delivery. Talk with doc! ...Read more

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?

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

What is breech? What causes it?

Lots of reasons: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read more

How to move breech baby on my own?

How to move breech baby on my own?

You should not: Depending on the month of pregnancy, the fetus may normally be in a breech position, and many fetuses that are breech during the early third trimester will "self-correct" during the last trimester. While there are various methods described for turning a breech baby, none have been sufficiently tested or proven. You should not try these on your own without first discussing with your obstetrician. ...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

What is the science behind using moxibustion to turn a breeched baby? (if any.)

What is the science behind using moxibustion to turn a breeched baby? (if any.)

Unknown: No one knows how it works, but the theory is that the uterus relaxes allowing the baby extra room to turn on its own. There are many small studies that suggest moxibustion with or without acupuncture results in an increased rate of the baby turning to be head down. There are no large randomized trials however. It worked for me though :). ...Read more
