What Are The Risks Of Turning A Baby That Is Breech With A Anterior Placenta
Very risky: Among breech babies, >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks spontaneously. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME. All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pregnant 24 wks anterior placenta. last scan extended breech position 3 days ago. my baby kicks very down low way below my bellybutton is this normal?
Last pregnancy my baby was breeched cause my placenta was a little low. What are the chances of this happening again?
What does it mean if a docter says your baby is transverse breech? also how serious is complete placenta previa?
I recently went to get an u/s at 38 weeks and they told me the baby is breech and that they see 2 placentas but only see one baby. What does it mean?
Cesarean section?: Breech presentation at term is best managed with prelabor cesarean section unless your obstetrician thinks that an external cephalic version is likely to be successful, or your fetus decides to turn head down on its own. Paraplacenta is not very rare but carries risks for vasa previa (require cesarean section to avoid fetal exsanguination in labor) and postpartum hemorrhage from retained placenta. ...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
Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?
Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
