Baby was footling breech since 24wks.Recently turned cephalic at 32wks yesterday.Is it likely she will stay that way till birth now?Wat can I do?

Be patient: A fetus assumes whatever position the uterus and chance allows, with more variability early and less as it approaches term. From now until term, increasing size forces less change in position as the uterine wall becomes stretched to accommodate baby. Although there is a chance she can still flip, it is less than earlier.There is little if anything you can do to influence the final position. ...Read more

Footling breech at 30 weeks.What are chances of her changing to cephalic? I have sme minor uterine synechiae near my cervix n scarring in cervix? :(

Depends- what did : your doctor say? In some cases, 'going on all fours' meaning a position that looks similar to doing the cat/or dog yoga position (without arching your back) on hands and knees will belly hanging down, can allow the fetus to have enough potential space to rearrange itself, its own positioning in the womb to not be breech, not necessarily an old wive's tale. Other times, u need the doctor to assist. ...Read more

29wks pregnant and have an inert fear that bubs cord will prolapse/get stuck and i wont know. She is footling breech and anterior placenta? scared :(

Bag of water: Cord prolapse is a known complication of a footling breech presentation but the bag of water must be broken for this to happen. You could ask your doctor if there is any reason to suspect that you would be at risk for preterm labor or preterm rupture of membranes. Many babies are breech at 29 weeks with only a tiny percent staying that way at term. ...Read more

28wks pregnant. Found out at ob appt today baby is footling breech.Ob wants to monitor cervix fortnightly.Is this dangerous?Scared of cord prolapse?

OK to monitor: Though I wouldn't be so concerned about your cervix unless it were open or if there were concern about preterm labor, it is reasonable to regularly see your obstetrician for prenatal care. Ultrasounds to evaluate your baby's position and switch from breech to cephalic are important and just b/c it's breech now doesn't mean it'll be breech later. See your doctor ASAP if you have pain/discharge. ...Read more
