Answer: Your doctor will feel your abdomen whenever you have your pregnancy check-ups in second and third trimesters – this is called an ‘abdominal palpation’. When they feel your abdomen at 35-36 weeks, they will assess whether the baby has settled into a head-down position preparation for birth. If they suspect your baby There are 3 main types of breech position. All of them involve the baby being in a bottom-down, head up, position. The variations of breech include: frank breech – the baby’s legs are straight up in front of its body in a V shape, so its feet are up near its face. complete breech – the baby is in a sitting position with its legs crossed in front of its body and its feet near its bottom. footling breech – one or both of the baby’s feet are hanging below its bottom, so the foot or feet are coming first. While your baby is still in the womb, it is just as safe for them to be in a breech position as it is for them to be head-down. There are no long-term effects upon children who were in a breech position during pregnancy. The birth process, however, is often more challenging when babies are still breech at the start of labour. Often it is unclear why a baby remains in a breech position, however, some of the common reasons include: too much or too little amniotic fluid around the baby the length of the umbilica If your baby is in a breech position at 36 weeks, your doctor or midwife might suggest you think about an ECV, or external cephalic version, after 37 weeks. This will increase your chances of your baby turning to a head-down position. There is some evidence to suggest that moxibustion (a Chinese herbal treatment) and other acupuncture point stimulation methods, in combination with holding certain body positions, might be helpful for some women, but further research is needed. Some people think that you might be able to encourage your baby to turn by holding yourself in certain positions, such as kneeling with your bottom in the air and your head and shoulders flat to the ground. There is no good evidence that this works. Talk to your doctor before trying any techniques to be sure they do not harm you or your baby. The safest way to have a baby, for both mother and child, is a head-first vaginal birth. But if you don’t want to try ECV, or if you try it but it doesn’t work, then the options are a caesarean .

Question: Hlo.. Dr told me my baby is in breach position.. What should I do so dat it move in its correct position
Answer: Hi dear, Breech position in later stages of pregnancy is quite panicky,as there is less scope of baby to move and change position.but there are some exercises that could be effective: 1- breech tilt exercises. try to elevate your pelvic region,by placing few pillows underneath.make sure your pelvic region is atleast 9 inches above your head.this would make baby's chest touching his chin and baby could somersault,and go head down.do this 3 times a day for 10 minutes on empty stomach or when the baby is active. 2- knee to chest leaning This is to make your uterus expand a bit to make room for baby's head.you need to kneel down and bend your arms and place it on ground.also rest your chin on arms fold.this would help baby to somersault again.do this twice a day for 10 minutes 3-swimming helps too 4- hot and cold compress alternatively could help baby to react to temperature and move 5- keep some music playing at lower pevic region.sound vibrations too help baby to move a round. 6- last option is ECV which is actually performed post 37 weeks when baby can no longer change his position.it quite painful,as doctors relaxes the uterus with medication and pushes the lower abdomen with some force to manually change baby's position.my aunt had got this done prior to delivery.again people with complicated cannot go through this process. If nothing works ,then c section is the only way to deliver as normal delivery is highly dangerous for breech baby.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
