What is a Breech Baby?
Normally, a baby’s natural position before birth is head down bottoms up. However, in certain cases, the baby moves inside and takes a head up or bottom-first position. This change in position of the baby is called breech position and accordingly the baby is termed breech baby in medical terminology.
Turning a Breech baby naturally is not an easy task.A breech baby is a sudden happening, which may change your planned course of delivery (vaginal or Caesarean section) and creates moments of terror and anxiety. Let us get some ways to help you with how to turn a breach baby naturally along with a discussion on the alternatives.
Symptoms of carrying a Breech Baby
Carrying a breech baby does not entail any specific symptoms. Neither they come up with any conscious physical experience by the mother. Most of the breech position is taken by a baby during his/her mother’s sleep.
When do you know that your baby is a Breech?
A breech baby is an almost fully developed baby in its mother’s uterus. Normally, during regular ultrasound at 35-37 weeks, a baby if it is a breech - can be diagnosed.
How to deliver a Breech Baby?
Your doctor/medical health professional/midwife will suggest you to go for a cesarean section delivery rather than a normal vaginal delivery if you are carrying a breech baby.
This is due to the reasons that, with normal vaginal delivery, it is not only painful for women with breech babies, but also entails the risk of various fatalities such as-
1- Umbilical cord prolapse due to amniotic sac failure.
2- Oxygen Deprivation to the baby which may lead to brain damage and death in worst case.
3- Injury to brain, skulls or other parts of the baby.
4- Excessive vaginal bleeding, which may lead to the death of the mother.
5- Premature death of the baby.
How to turn a Breech Baby naturally?
Exercise is the key to most of the health problems. However, with a breech bay inside, the exercises are different and have a significant chance of un-breeching your breech baby. There are various home exercises such as forward leaning inversion (kneeling down back and forth), breech tilt (elevating hips back and forth), knee to chest exercise etc. which are simple, riskless and worthy of turning around a breech baby.
Swimming can change the vertex position of a breech baby and bring him/her back to the natural position. Swimming gently during last weeks of your pregnancy not only zings up your mood and undertones your fatigued muscles; but also create waves which signals the baby to change its breech position.
3- Acupuncture, Moxibustion & Chiropractics
Gem of physical and muscular relaxation, these three techniques are considered very effective in turning a breech baby. Acupuncture helps in generating good blood flow which induces the baby to change its breech position. Similarly, Moxibustion is a technique where low heating technique is applied on the skin of the mother which creates sensation in her body which eventually helps in un-breeching the breech baby. In this way, Chiropractics also comes handy with its relevant benefit of balancing the pelvic area through which a baby can be un-breeched.
4- ECV- External Cephalic Version
ECV is considered somehow the best technique to turn a breech baby. Although it is a natural method, it involves medical precision and should not be tried at home. Under this method, your doctor or the midwife use hands to manipulate baby’s position with the help of an ultrasound.
Music always works great. Be it uplifting your mood to turning a breech baby around, music is very helpful. Music entails sound waves which if you can transmit to your baby can help him/her un-breech.
