Baby Breech And Wrapped Around The Umbilical Cord Can Normal Fluid?
BismillahirohmanirrohimDok me, Mrs. Asri wants to ask … At 33 weeks old, my fetus is breeched and entangled in umbilical cord with a weight of 2,235 Can I still be liquid normally? And what can I try to keep my fetus in the normal position? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of the womb that has entered the third trimester, ideally the baby's position is the head down (head presentation). This can facilitate the occurrence of normal childbirth later, because the largest and hardest part of the baby's body is the head. However, that does not mean also that the breech position is not possible at all to be born normally. In many cases, a breech fetus can be born safely as well.
Twisted umbilical cord in the fetus too often is not dangerous. Along with its movements in the uterus, most fetuses can be separated from the coil. However, it is not uncommon for these windings to last until the time for delivery. This coil, if tenuous and the number is not much, often can be handled well in normal labor. However, if the turns are very tight or very numerous (more than 3 turns), then a normal delivery can indeed be very risky. It is feared, this coil causes the baby can not breathe optimally so there is fetal distress, amputation of the neck and head, and even death.
The ideal fetal weight at delivery is not less than 2500 grams. The weight of your fetus may still increase until the time you give birth later. If your fetus is of good weight, loose and slightly umbilical cord, and / or your fetal position is rotating to the head presentation, and no other labor complications are found, the possibility of a normal delivery can still be sought. However, if there are other conditions, or if other complications of labor are found, whether they originate from the mother (for example hypertension or uncontrolled diabetes, narrow pelvis, weak heart), the fetus (for example fetal distress, musculoskeletal defects, hypoxia), or others ( for example, a low placenta) then your doctor will prefer cesarean delivery, of course, for the good of you and the fetus in your womb. With his competence and experience, the obstetrician who treats you naturally understands the best. So, consult him directly ...
There are no specific steps you can take to make the fetus in your uterus rotate to the head presentation, given the umbilical cord that is wrapped around it. However, there is no harm in trying to multiply your knees, namely with the position of the head, cheeks, chest, and abdomen attached to the floor, but do not put too much pressure on the fetus. Perform this step often to get more optimal results.
Hope this helps ...
