Answer: Hi dear, your doctor is right there are very slim chances if baby changing his position. Planning your c sec well ahead is safe for you and your baby. As during labour first of its not mandate that baby will change a his position second most of the times baby's neck gets entangled in cord, which could be fatal and warrant emergency c sec. This is the reason why doctor's don't risk normal delivery in breech position.
Answer: Usually baby rotates at 34 to 36 wks ....so it's better to have section than waiting to prevent foetal distress during delivery

Question: 9 months completed by today but baby position is in breech is it possible for normal delivery
Answer: Hello dear, Some breech and transverse babies turn themselves naturally in the last month of pregnancy. ... 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. Please do some squatting exercises, walking , climbing stairs maybe but dont strain yourself too much to cause pain. Baby will descend or maybe will happen just before labor or during labor and its important to be active and moving around and not just lying on your back during labor. Hope it helped, Take care urself....

Question: Hello doctor i am in 35weeks 2days now my baby position was still breech position. My doctor saying that there is less chance for normal delivery but I want normal delivery. What can i do for normal delivery
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!

Question: hi...my baby is in breech position in recent usg...is their any chance to change position?if not is normal delivery possible...my doc said not possible...
Answer: up to 34 weeks there are chances of the baby to move and rarely after 34 weeks the baby changes position. there are therapies like music therapy, exercises, which will change the position of the baby but they should be done by consulting the doctor... usually breech babies are born by c-section because there are chances that the baby's shoulder will dislocate if born through normal delivery...
