Hello Novi Yanti, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
How old is your pregnancy? Did you control your obstetrician?
A breech presentation pregnancy must be evaluated by an obstetrician.
For consideration of normal birth or surgery, it is necessary to consult with a gynecologist, generally considering gestational age, estimated fetal weight (can be with USG), number of previous normal births, history of breech deliveries, opening and descending of the fetal bottom.
In general, if the lowest part of the fetus has not entered the pelvis, the presentation and location of the fetus can still change (in the first pregnancy, the lowest part of the fetus enters the pelvis at 36 weeks 'gestation, whereas in the second pregnancy and so on at 38 weeks' gestation). Efforts to change the position of the baby (external cephalic version) must also be done in health facilities available in caesarean sectio services and generally carried out at 36-38 weeks' gestation. This procedure is done by putting pressure on the mother's abdomen using her hands, positioned so that the baby's head is under. In addition, if the lower part of the fetus has not entered the pelvis (gestational age <36 weeks), it is advisable to increase the position of prostration in the hope that the fetal presentation can turn into a head presentation (read this article on how to improve breech position naturally).
In the question it was informed that you have a small amount of amniotic fluid. The causes of a little amniotic fluid include: Amniotic fluid has previously seeped, or disorders of the fetus (for example disorders of kidney formation or urinary system). Amniotic fluid serves to provide space for the fetus, prevent infection, protect the fetus from collisions, support the development of the lungs, digestive system, and fetal bones. If the volume is small, the fetal space is reduced and other functions of the amniotic fluid are not optimal, so that it can cause complications for the fetus (such as clubfoot). It is better for you to have your obstetrician checked immediately by the obstetrician for evaluation of fetal well-being and definitive management immediately.
All our answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
