Ultrasound Shows Breech Presentation
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
What are the chances of having a breech presentation for my second child if my first child was breech?
It's increased: Some study showed, that the rate of breech recurrence in a second consecutive pregnancy was 9.9%, and in a third consecutive pregnancy (after two prior breech deliveries) was 27.5%. The relative risk of breech recurrence in a second pregnancy was 3.2 (95% ci 2.8–3.6), and in a third consecutive breech pregnancy was 13.9 (95% ci 8.8–22.1). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Play on words: You could consider it a challenge or a complication depending on the setting. If baby was head down all of pregnancy & came in for delivery as breech, i'd consider it a complicating factor to what may have been a simpler delivery.Since the head is the largest body part to deliver, bottom out kids can get stuck so c section is often necessary but a surprise.Breech deliveries are more of a challange. ...Read more
Do not deliver breec: Sometimes the OB can turn the infant before birth (externally) and sometimes infants turn themselves. As a neonatologist-if a fetus presents breech at time of delivery and stays that way-best to deliver by c/s. Safest for little infant's head. ...Read more
There is single active intrauterine fetus with Breech presentation. Fetal body movement and cardiac activity are present.
Breech: This means your baby is in the uterus, butt first, the baby is alive and doing well. The only issue here is, if you are near your due date and the baby is breech (butt first), you will likely need a cesarean section unless you opt for an version, a procedure to flip the baby from butt to head first, then you can deliver vaginally. If you are early on the baby changes position all the time. ...Read more
My wife is 37 week pregnant with hypothyroid, breech presentation and high blood pressure. Should we go for cesarean before 40th week. Please suggest.
Depends: Given that the baby is breech, it would likely already be recommended your wife have a cesarean section. However, given the high blood pressure, sometimes it is necessary to deliver the baby before 40 weeks. It would depend on how high her BP is and if it is accompanied by other symptoms such as a high level of protein in her urine. The health of the fetus is also considered. Talk to your ob/gyn. ...Read more
Wait it out: Babies do change positions during pregnancy so it could switch by next week. If it doesn't switch naturally, sometimes the OB can try a turning maneuver called a version to turn it., but this has some risks. If you go to full term as a breach expect a surgical delivery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The dr told my husband & i that are baby is breeched the bpd is 3.76cm should we be concered accoring to the ultrasound the g.a is 17w3d9d ?
No worries: It is not at all usual for a baby to be in a breech position during the second trimester. Your baby still has plenty of room and plenty of time to turn over. The position of the fetus is always reported on ultrasound, but is not really reason for concern until the baby is getting bigger and close to delivery. Don't worry. If the ultrasound findings are normal, you are blessed. ...Read more
Cs delivery due to breech on my first child , now 8 months. Preggy had an ultrasound and babys position headdown is it going to be normal delivery?
Maybe,maybe not: Vaginal delivery after cs is possible but must be approached with a plan for both possibilities.Here a woman is watched through labor and if progressing well, will deliver from below. If there is any slow down or problems identified the delivery is planned with a double setup, wherein both natural delivery or conversion to surgical delivery can be done in minutes. ...Read more
I saw on my 38 week growth ultrasound that the baby's bpd was in the 9th percentile, yet everything else was 30-50th percentile.Nobody mentioned it to me.Is this just normal variation?He's not breech.
If my baby was breech at my last two ultrasounds does that mean she will stay like that I am 23 weeks now?
Breech at 23 weeks..: Good news! breech at 23 weeks in no way predicts final presentation. She will be flipping/ turning more times than you will care to count over the next months and has lots of time to get into the ideal head first presentation before delivery! congratulations, and make that prenatal visit with pediatricians in your area if you don't have one picked out so you can find the right fit for you and baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The anterior low-lying placenta could be a problem with bleeding in labor, called placenta previa - please discuss with your OB for more information ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ultrasound is best!: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
