Thank you for the question.
Many people worry too much if the fetus is in its breech. Even though this condition is not always dangerous. A breech whose breech position is also not necessarily can not be born normally.
Sungsang usually occurs due to abnormal placental position. It could also, the fetus is in a breech position due to other factors, such as a short umbilical cord, large fetus, amniotic fluid is lacking, twin fetuses, or also due to other factors that are not clearly known (idiopathic). Most cases of fetuses whose breech position before the age of 36 weeks can turn by itself until born with the position of the head during labor. However, if this condition persists until the age of 36 weeks or more, it seems likely that the fetal position can still change quite small, although it is also not impossible at all.
We strongly discourage you from doing random massage so that the fetus in your wife's womb rotates its position. Inappropriate massage can be very risky for the fetus in the womb of your wife, it can even cause preterm labor, fetal distress, until the death of the fetus in the womb.
Simply invite your wife to check her gynecology to a gynecologist so that her condition and the fetus in the womb can be evaluated properly. In some cases, the position of a breech fetus that does not rotate by itself at 36 weeks of pregnancy can be repositioned by a doctor with special techniques. However, this effort is not without risk, so it must be done by competent and experienced medical personnel. Also discuss with your doctor about the right method of delivery, both for your wife and the fetus in the womb.
At home, you can teach your wife to make the following efforts to get the fetus in its womb to rotate naturally:
Expand prostrating, stick cheeks, chest, abdomen, and knees on the floor (but do not crush the fetus). Do this a few minutes, and several times a day, rest when feeling tired or dizzy.
Keep doing activities as usual, don't sit too much or lie down (unless the doctor recommends otherwise)
Start doing routine pregnancy exercises so that your labor will take place more smoothly
Calm your mind, don't be too stressed, anxious, panicked, or afraid to overdo it
Hope this helps ...
