Answer: Hello, There is no way to force a baby to drop and engage in the pelvis, but there are a few things you can do that will make it much easier for him/her to do so. Sometimes, a baby won't drop because the pelvic outlet is too tight so getting a bodywork to release any tight ligaments can really help. Aside from this, work to open that pelvic outlet as much as possible: sit on a birthing or exercise ball instead of the couch or a chair as much as possible. Do clockwise and counter-clockwise hip circles on the ball as often as you can. Do some supported squatting as long as you can, especially in a warm tub (if possible). Sit in the cobbler's pose (put feet together and bring them in as close to your butt as possible, then gently flap your legs up and down). Get on hands and knees and do pelvic rocks. And, of course, walking,walking and being upright can help your baby move down onto your cervix so she's in the right position for labour.This means labour is more likely to start on its own. In addition, as you walk, it's thought that the rhythmic pressure of your baby's head on your cervix stimulates the release of oxytocin.
Answer: It is not always possible to turn your baby from being breech. Some breech babies can be safely delivered through the vagina, but usually doctors deliver them by C-section. Risks involved with a C-section include bleeding and infection. There also can be a longer hospital stay for both the mother and her baby. Other risks can occur for breech babies who are born vaginally. These include: An injury during or after delivery. An injury where the baby’s hip socket and thigh bone become separated. Problems with the umbilical cord. For example, the umbilical cord can be flattened during delivery. This can cause nerve and brain damage due to a lack of oxygen.
