Question: Hi what means breech presentation
Answer: Hello dear,baby changing position is very normal and you should not get worries too much. There are some natural turning techniques that may help you to change the bottom-first position of your breech baby.
Adopting a knee-to-chest position. Kneel on a mat on the floor with your bottom in the air, and your head, shoulders and upper chest flat to the floor. The aim is to tip your baby back up and out of your pelvis, to give him more room to turn around. Don't let your thighs press against your bump and keep your knees hip-distance apart. Maintain this position for 15 minutes, several times a day.
Lie on your back with your hips slightly elevated (breech tilt). Place a pillow under your hips and have your knees bent. Repeat up to three times a day for 10 minutes at a time. Try to do this when you have a reasonably empty tummy and when your baby is active.
Moxibustion (moxa) is a form of traditional Chinese medicine used to try to turn breech babies. It uses a moxa stick, which looks like a big cigar, on an acupuncture point on the body. This is usually between the toes for breech presentation. When the herbal stick is burned, it should encourage your baby to move and hopefully turn from breech (bottom first) to cephalic (head first). It will certainly increase your baby’s movements if nothing else!
Question: hi mam posteriorly placenta means
Answer: When a woman is pregnant, an organ called the placenta delivers nutrients and oxygen from the blood of the mother to the blood of the baby. The placenta covers a wide area and is connected to the uterus of the mother. The umbilical cord connects the placenta to the baby.
The front area of the uterus is considered the anterior; the back side is the posterior; the fundal is the top wall; and the sides of the uterus are the right and left laterals. It doesn’t matter which area of the uterus the placenta situates itself, but if the lower portion is too far down it can make it difficult for the baby’s head to descend when it is time for the birth. Having a posterior placenta means that it can cause the mother to experience excessive bleeding while pregnant as well as while giving birth
Question: hi... cephalic presentation means???
Answer: A cephalic presentation or head presentation or head-first presentation is a situation at childbirth where the fetus is in a longitudinal lie and the head enters the pelvis first; the most common form of cephalic presentation is the vertex presentation where the occiput is the leading part (the part that first enters the birth canal). All other presentations are abnormal which are either more difficult to deliver or not deliverable by natural means.
