The Position Of The Breech Baby At 8 Months Of Pregnancy?
in the morning, I am 33 weeks pregnant, and yesterday afternoon I checked the womb and ultrasound, when the ultrasound the position of the baby’s head was on the right, and what I want to ask is, at 33 weeks of pregnancy, the baby’s head can still rotate down or not? Thank you in advance..
Hi Destiyan, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The position that you mean by head up and buttocks down is more often referred to as the breech position, and although labor can still be done in this position, the level of difficulty and skill required is higher than childbirth in a normal position.
Regarding your question, the point is that babies in general can still turn in until 34-36 weeks of gestation because at that age, there is less amniotic fluid, the baby is getting bigger, and the baby's bottom may have entered the pelvis so it is no longer possible to rotate.
Our advice, discuss with your doctor what should be done based on your clinical so far as well as hip size and the like, but in general, the options are:
Sleep on your back with your hips raised. Place a pillow under your pelvis and bend your knees. It is best to do this position when the baby is active and your stomach is empty. Do it 3 times a day for 10 minutes.
Knee chest position. Position your body in a position similar to prostration with the position of your head, knees, shoulders and upper chest on the floor for 15 minutes every few days.
External cephalic version. This is what may be known as baby massage, but must be performed by experienced medical personnel. You can ask your doctor if it is still possible for you to do this movement.
May your pregnancy and child birth go smoothly.
So, hopefully useful.
