What does it mean if a docter says your baby is transverse breech? also how serious is complete placenta previa?

Worrisome findings: For a baby to deliver from below they need access to oxygen from the placenta until they can get out & breathe. It should be positioned high in the uterus. A complete previa means it sits low & covers the cervix from the inside, blocking the way out so C-section is required. The kid is also crossways with bottom a bit lower. You will need to schedule a C/S or go in at the first sign of labor. ...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

Describe the features of a breech delivery and its complications.?

Breech delivery: Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head. It is very risky because head can get trapped inside the uterus and also hypoxic episodes are more prone in this case of delivery. Head is the largest part of the baby so maternal pelvis may not accomodate the head. Today in civilised world no one delivers breech unless the baby butt is out and you can't do a cesarean. ...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

How do you turn a baby during a breech birth?

How do you turn a baby during a breech birth?

With difficulty: Sometimes an obstetrician will try a "version" maneuver in early labor, but this is risky. If the baby has descended partly into the birth canal it is unlikely to change position. The maneuver also has some risk of causing part of the placenta to separate. This would often only be attempted as a last event, before taking mom to the OR for a c-section. ...Read more
