Handling For Breech Baby Positions?
Morning, I want to ask if the knee chest position is correct “can a breech baby return to the correct position (head down)? r nthank you
Hello NanikPri, Thank you for the question.
Towards the end of the pregnancy period, the fetus should be ready to be born, with the head down and over the pelvis. However, not all fetuses have their heads down, some are still above (breech). Handling of the breech position before childbirth can be done with pregnant women who do certain postural management positions, one of which is the knee chest position. Research on the role of the body position of pregnant women in helping to change the position of the fetus is still insufficient, so there is no strong evidence that this position is highly proven to change the position of the fetus in the womb. However, obstetricians usually still recommend this position because it can help to change the position of the fetus and the position of the body that pregnant women do is quite safe. Please consult with your gynecologist.
