Breech Presentation: A malpresentation of the FETUS at near term or during OBSTETRIC LABOR with the fetal cephalic pole in the fundus of the UTERUS. There are three types of breech: the complete breech with flexed hips and knees; the incomplete breech with one or both hips partially or fully extended; the frank breech with flexed hips and extended knees.Version, Fetal: The artificial alteration of the fetal position to facilitate birth.Cesarean Section: Extraction of the FETUS by means of abdominal HYSTEROTOMY.Labor Presentation: The position or orientation of the FETUS at near term or during OBSTETRIC LABOR, determined by its relation to the SPINE of the mother and the birth canal. The normal position is a vertical, cephalic presentation with the fetal vertex flexed on the NECK.Delivery, Obstetric: Delivery of the FETUS and PLACENTA under the care of an obstetrician or a health worker. Obstetric deliveries may involve physical, psychological, medical, or surgical interventions.Fetal Distress: A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.Infant, Postmature: An infant born at or after 42 weeks of gestation.Pelvimetry: Measurement of the dimensions and capacity of the pelvis. It includes cephalopelvimetry (measurement of fetal head size in relation to maternal pelvic capacity), a prognostic guide to the management of LABOR, OBSTETRIC associated with disproportion.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Dystocia: Slow or difficult OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH.Cesarean Section, Repeat: Extraction of the fetus by abdominal hysterotomy anytime following a previous cesarean.Parity: The number of offspring a female has borne. It is contrasted with GRAVIDITY, which refers to the number of pregnancies, regardless of outcome.Pregnancy Outcome: Results of conception and ensuing pregnancy, including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; SPONTANEOUS ABORTION; INDUCED ABORTION. The outcome may follow natural or artificial insemination or any of the various ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TECHNIQUES, such as EMBRYO TRANSFER or FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Birth Weight: The mass or quantity of heaviness of an individual at BIRTH. It is expressed by units of pounds or kilograms.Gestational Age: The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION. In clinical obstetrics, the gestational age is often estimated as the time from the last day of the last MENSTRUATION which is about 2 weeks before OVULATION and fertilization.Ultrasonography, Prenatal: The visualization of tissues during pregnancy through recording of the echoes of ultrasonic waves directed into the body. The procedure may be applied with reference to the mother or the fetus and with reference to organs or the detection of maternal or fetal disease.Fitness Centers: Facilities having programs intended to promote and maintain a state of physical well-being for optimal performance and health.Moxibustion: The burning of a small, thimble sized, smoldering plug of dried leaves on the SKIN at an ACUPUNCTURE point. Usually the plugs contain leaves of MUGWORT or moxa.Acupuncture Therapy: Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.Melissa: A plant genus of the family LAMIACEAE. The common names of beebalm or lemonbalm are also used for MONARDA.Chiropractic: An occupational discipline founded by D.D. Palmer in the 1890's based on the relationship of the spine to health and disease.Vaginal Birth after Cesarean: Delivery of an infant through the vagina in a female who has had a prior cesarean section.Live Birth: The event that a FETUS is born alive with heartbeats or RESPIRATION regardless of GESTATIONAL AGE. Such liveborn is called a newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN).Manipulation, Chiropractic: Procedures used by chiropractors to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints.Trigger Points: Discrete spots in taut bands of muscle that produce local and referred pain when muscle bands are compressed.Pamphlets: Printed publications usually having a format with no binding and no cover and having fewer than some set number of pages. They are often devoted to a single subject.Heart Rate, Fetal: The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.Cardiotocography: Monitoring of FETAL HEART frequency before birth in order to assess impending prematurity in relation to the pattern or intensity of antepartum UTERINE CONTRACTION.Fetal Monitoring: Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.Nonlinear Dynamics: The study of systems which respond disproportionately (nonlinearly) to initial conditions or perturbing stimuli. Nonlinear systems may exhibit "chaos" which is classically characterized as sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Chaotic systems, while distinguished from more ordered periodic systems, are not random. When their behavior over time is appropriately displayed (in "phase space"), constraints are evident which are described by "strange attractors". Phase space representations of chaotic systems, or strange attractors, usually reveal fractal (FRACTALS) self-similarity across time scales. Natural, including biological, systems often display nonlinear dynamics and chaos.Schizophrenia: A severe emotional disorder of psychotic depth characteristically marked by a retreat from reality with delusion formation, HALLUCINATIONS, emotional disharmony, and regressive behavior.Schizophrenic Psychology: Study of mental processes and behavior of schizophrenics.PhiladelphiaPregnancy Complications: Conditions or pathological processes associated with pregnancy.

Should a preterm breech go for vaginal delivery or caesarean section. (1/92)

This study correlates the mode of breech delivery to the immediate neonatal outcome in preterm breeches. We had 9816 deliveries in the period between 1st January 1994 to 31st August 1996. The incidence of breech deliveries was 3.95% and the incidence of preterm breech deliveries was 1.9%. Totally 112 (69%) patients delivered vaginally and 50 (31%) underwent caesarean section. Between 30-36.6 weeks gestation the incidence of birth asphyxia was higher in the vaginal group. In this group the take home baby rate after vaginal delivery was 81% as compared to 86% in caesarean group. Head entrapment, cord prolapse, respiratory distress syndrome and intraventricular haemorrhage were the various complications seen with vaginal breech delivery.  (+info)

Birth trauma to muscles in babies born by breech delivery and its possible fatal consequences. (2/92)

Dissection and histological examination was made of the muscles of 86 babies who died after breech delivery, and of 38 babies who died after vertex presentation. A control group of 50 surviving breech-delivered babies was examined clinically and the results compared. It was concluded that the most common type of birth trauma to a baby born by breech delivery is injury to muscles and soft tissues of the back and lower extremities, which is often extensive. In some severly injured babies histological examination of organs revels signs of crush syndrome and disseminated intravascular coagulation. It is suggested that the extensive muscle trauma forms the background of these fatal conditions.  (+info)

A decision analytical cost analysis of offering ECV in a UK district general hospital. (3/92)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the care pathways and implications of offering mothers the choice of external cephalic version (ECV) at term for singleton babies who present with an uncomplicated breech pregnancy versus assisted breech delivery or elective caesarean. DESIGN: A prospective observational audit to construct a decision analysis of uncomplicated full term breech presentations. SETTING: The North Staffordshire NHS Trust. SUBJECTS: All women (n = 176) who presented at full term with a breech baby without complications during July 1995 and June 1997. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The study determined to compare the outcome in terms of the costs and cost consequences for the care pathways that resulted from whether a women chose to accept the offer of ECV or not. All the associated events were then mapped for the two possible pathways. The costs were considered only within the hospital setting, from the perspective of the health care provider up to the point of delivery. RESULTS: The additional costs for ECV, assisted breech delivery and elective caesarean over and above a normal birth were 186.70 pounds sterling, 425.36 pounds sterling and 1,955.22 pounds sterling respectively. The total expected cost of the respective care pathways for "ECV accepted" and "ECV not accepted" (including the probability of adverse events) were 1,452 pounds sterling and 1,828 pounds sterling respectively, that is the cost of delivery through the ECV care pathways is less costly than the non ECV delivery care pathway. CONCLUSIONS: Implementing an ECV service may yield cost savings in secondary care over and above the traditional delivery methods for breech birth of assisted delivery or caesarean section. The scale of these expected cost savings are in the range of 248 pounds sterling to 376 pounds sterling per patient. This converts to a total expected cost saving of between 43,616 pounds sterling and 44,544 pounds sterling for the patient cohort considered in this study.  (+info)

Role of pelvimetry in active management of labour. (4/92)

All cases referred for pelvimetry in 1970-1 and all breech presentations referred for pelvimetry in 1972-4 were reviewed. Indications for pelvimetry fell into four main categories: high head in the antenatal clinic (47-8%); high head in labour (13-9%); breech presentation (20-9%); and previous caesarean section (14-8%). In the first two categories pelvimetry rarely if ever influenced management, and it should not be performed routinely. In breech presentation and cases of caesarean section pelvimetry seemed to be of value, but in the latter group it should be performed puerperally to avoid the known radiation hazard to the fetus. A fairly close correlation between obstetric conjugate and pelvic capacity was shown, which suggested that a 3400-g baby might pass through a pelvis of obstetric conjugate of 10 cm as a cephalic trial of labour, but would need an obstetric conjugate of 11-7 cm for safe vaginal breech delivery.  (+info)

Moxibustion in breech version--a descriptive review. (5/92)

The management of breech presentation at term remains controversial. It appears logical that maternal and perinatal outcomes would be improved if breech presentation could be avoided. External cephalic version is considered a safe procedure if cases are selected appropriately and anaesthesia avoided. Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese method of treatment, which utilizes the heat generated by burning herbal preparations containing the plant Artemisia vulgaris to stimulate the acupuncture points. It is used for breech version with a reported success rate of 84.6% after 34 weeks gestation. Moxibustion technique is cheap, safe, simple, self-administered, non-invasive, painless and generally well tolerated. Although many studies give encouraging results regarding the use of moxibustion in inducing cephalic version of breech presentation, a definitive conclusion cannot be made as most involve small sample sizes and are not randomised. Moxibustion could be an extra option offered to women with breech presentation along with vaginal delivery, caesarean section and external cephalic version. This article discusses the possible role of moxibustion in correction of breech presentation in the hope that, some interest will be stimulated in what is a very interesting area for future research.  (+info)

Obstetric outcome among women with unexplained infertility after IVF: a matched case-control study. (6/92)

BACKGROUND: Infertility itself and also assisted reproductive treatment increase the incidence of some obstetric complications. Women with unexplained infertility are reported to be at an increased risk of intrauterine growth restriction during pregnancy, but not for other perinatal complications. METHODS: A matched case-control study was performed on care during pregnancy and delivery, obstetric complications and infant perinatal outcomes of 107 women with unexplained infertility, with 118 clinical pregnancies after IVF or ICSI treatment. These resulted in 90 deliveries; of these, 69 were singleton, 20 twin and one triplet. Two control groups were chosen from the Finnish Medical Birth Register, one group for spontaneous pregnancies (including 445 women and 545 children), matched according to maternal age, parity, year of birth, mother's residence and number of children at birth, and the other group for all pregnancies after IVF, ICSI or frozen embryo transfer treatment (FET) during the study period (including 2377 women and 2853 children). RESULTS: Among singletons, no difference was found in the mean birthweight, and the incidence of low birthweight (<2500 g) was comparable with that of the control groups. No differences were found in gestational duration, major congenital malformations or perinatal mortality among the groups studied. Among singletons in the study group, there were more term breech presentations (10.1%) compared with both spontaneously conceiving women and all IVF women (P < 0.01). The rate of pregnancy-induced hypertension was significantly lower among singletons in the study group (P < 0.05) compared with other IVF singletons. The multiple pregnancy rate was 23.3% in the study group. The obstetric outcome of the IVF twins was similar to both control groups. CONCLUSIONS: The overall obstetric outcome among couples with unexplained infertility treated with IVF was good, with similar outcome compared with spontaneous pregnancies and IVF pregnancies generally.  (+info)

Erich Bracht (1882-1969) of Berlin and his "breech" manoeuvre. (7/92)

Erich Bracht, a German gynaecologist, described in 1935 the manoeuvre named after him for delivering the frank breech with minimal interference. In spite of the reported success of his method, it received little attention in the United Kingdom or North America.  (+info)

Introducing routine external cephalic version for the management of the malpresenting fetus near term. (8/92)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of external cephalic version (ECV) when its use was introduced in the routine management of breech presentation and transverse lie after 36 weeks by obstetricians with limited prior experience with the procedure. The influence of various factors on the outcome of ECV was also studied. METHODS: Retrospective study of 44 consecutive cases of ECV which were analysed with respect to outcome, parity, type of breech, placental site and birth weight. RESULTS: ECV was successful in 45% of women, 80% of women with successful ECV delivered vaginally while 10% underwent spontaneous reversion to a non-cephalic presentation. In contrast, only 15% of women with failed ECV delivered vaginally. Parity, type of breech presentation and placental location did not significantly affect the outcome of ECV although there was a trend towards better success rate of ECV with multiparity, flexed breech presentation, transverse lie and posteriorly-located placentae. The mean birth weight of fetuses of women with successful ECV was significantly heavier than those of women who failed ECV (p < 0.001). No significant fetal or maternal morbidity occurred as a result of ECV in this study. CONCLUSION: ECV is a safe and effective procedure that is useful in the management of breech presentation and transverse lie near term. The lack of prior experience with the procedure does not appear to influence the success rate or morbidity.  (+info)

If your baby presents as breech at term there is an increased risk of you needing a caesarean birth or having a complicated vaginal birth. Studies about the risks of breech presentation for both mother and baby show that, in certain situations, it can be safe to birth vaginally. However, there are some situations that will increase the risks for your baby. A caesarean birth also has increased risks for you compared to a vaginal birth. Therefore, all risks must be carefully considered when deciding what management option is right for you and your baby.. The lowest risk type of birth, for both mother and baby, is usually a vaginal birth where the baby is head first.

Background. Most countries recommend planned cesarean section in breech deliveries, which is considered safer than vaginal delivery. As one of few countries in the western world Norway has continued to practice planned vaginal delivery in selected women. The aim of this study is to evaluate prospectively registered neonatal and maternal outcomes in term singleton breech deliveries in a Norwegian hospital during a ten years period. We aim to compare maternal and neonatal outcomes in term breech pregnancies subjected either to planned vaginal or elective cesarean section.. Methods. A prospective registration study including 568 women with term breech deliveries (>37 weeks) consecutively registered at Sorlandet Hospital Kristiansand between 2001 and 2011. Fetal and maternal outcomes were compared according to delivery method; planned vaginal delivery versus planned cesarean section.. Results. Of 568 women, elective cesarean section was planned in 279 (49%) cases and vaginal delivery was planned in ...
2016 Australian College of Midwives.Background: Women with a breech baby late in pregnancy may use the internet to gather information to assist in decision-making for birth. The aim of this study was to examine how women use English language internet discussion forums to find out information about vaginal breech birth and to increase understanding of how vaginal breech birth is perceived among women. Method: A descriptive qualitative study of internet discussion forums was undertaken. Google alerts were created with the search terms breech birth and breech. Alerts were collected for a one-year period (January 2013-December 2013). The content of forum discussions was analysed using thematic analysis. Results: A total of 50 forum discussions containing 382 comments were collected. Themes that arose from the data were: . Testing the waters-which way should I go?; . Losing hope for the chance of a normal birth; . Seeking support for options-who will listen to me?; . Considering vaginal breech ...
EDITOR-In the term breech trial planned caesarean section was associated with a lower risk of death and initial serious morbidity, for singleton breech babies at term, compared with planned vaginal birth, although no benefit of planned caesarean was evident at 2 years of age.1 2. Kotaska does not believe that these results are generalisable and thinks that practitioners must have pushed their comfort level for vaginal breech delivery to achieve a vaginal delivery rate of 57%3. However, this rate was for women having a trial of labour and is similar to rates found in published reports.3. Kotaska also criticises the selection criteria and the intrapartum management of women planning a vaginal breech delivery in the trial, despite the fact that the protocol was developed at a consensus workshop by a group of obstetricians who were recognised in their communities as expert at vaginal breech delivery, and was then vetted by experienced obstetricians worldwide.4. We agree that operators skill is ...
Though breech presentation appears to be very common, most babies (96-97%) turn into the head down position between week 28 and week 32 of pregnancy. Once the babies have turned, they usually stay in this position because their head is the heaviest part of their body and space to move gradually becomes limited.. If you check with your primary healthcare provider at your regular monthly appointment and baby appears to have not yet turned head down by 33 weeks, this is a great time to try acupuncture and moxibustion. Around 36 weeks, if your baby has not turned, you may be offered an ECV (external cephalic version). This involves manipulating the baby through your abdomen to a head-first position. Although acupuncture and moxibustion are most effective between 33-36 weeks, increasing turning rates to 75.4% from 47.7%, treatments can also increase the success rate of ECVs.. ...

Breeches (/ˈbriːtʃɪz, ˈbrɪ-/ BREE-chiz, BRITCH-iz) are an article of clothing covering the body from the waist down, with separate coverings for each leg, usually stopping just below the knee, though in some cases reaching to the ankles. The breeches were normally closed and fastened about the leg, along its open seams at varied lengths, and to the knee, by either buttons or by a drawstring, or by one or more straps and buckle or brooches. Formerly a standard item of Western mens clothing, they had fallen out of use by the mid-19th century in favour of trousers. Modern athletic garments used for English riding and fencing, although called breeches or britches, differ from breeches in ways discussed below. Breeches is a double plural known since c. 1205, from Old English brēc, the plural of brōc "garment for the legs and trunk", from the Proto-Germanic word *brōk-, plural *brōkiz whence also the Old Norse word brók, which shows up in the epithet of the Viking king Ragnar Loðbrók, ...
Habek D, Cerkez Habek J, Jagust M.Clinical Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Clinical Hospital Osijek, Osijek, Croatia.. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the value of acupuncture (AP) in the conversion of fetal breech presentation into vertex presentation.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A randomized prospective controlled clinical study included 67 pregnant women with fetal breech presentation: 34 women with singleton pregnancies treated with manual AP (urinary bladder 67, Zhiyin) and a control group which included 33 women with singleton pregnancies without AP treatment. The AP treatment lasted 30 min a day, and was conducted during and after 34 weeks of pregnancy with simultaneous cardiotocography. RESULTS: The success rate of the AP correction of fetal breech presentation is 76.4% (26 women), and spontaneous conversion without AP in vertex presentation is observed in 15 women (45.4%; p0.001).. CONCLUSIONS: We believe that AP correction of fetal malpresentation is a relatively simple, ...
Breech presentation in pregnancy occurs when a baby presents with the buttocks or feet rather than the head first (cephalic presentation) and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality for both the mother and the baby. [1] Cunningham F, Gant N, Leveno K, et al. Williams obstetrics. 21 ed. New York: McGraw-Hill. 1997. [2] Kish K, Collea JV. Malpresentation and cord prolapse. In: DeCherney AH, Nathan L, eds. Current obstetric and gynecologic diagnosis and treatment. New York: McGraw-Hill Professional. 2002. There is good current evidence regarding effective management of breech presentation in late pregnancy using external cephalic version and/or planned cesarean section. ...
Umbilical cord prolapse may occur, particularly in the complete, footling, or kneeling breech. This is caused by the lowermost parts of the baby not completely filling the space of the dilated cervix. When the waters break amniotic sac, it is possible for the umbilical cord to drop down and become compressed. This complication severely diminishes oxygen flow to the baby and the baby must be delivered immediately (usually by Caesarean section) so that he or she can breathe. If there is a delay in delivery, the brain can be damaged. Among full-term, head down babies, cord prolapse is quite rare, occurring in 0.4 percent. Among frank breech babies the incidence is 0.5 percent, among complete breeches 4-6 percent, and among footling breeches 15-18 percent. Head entrapment is caused the failure of the fetal head to negotiate the maternal pelvis. At full term, the bitrochanteric diameter (the distance between the outer points of the hips) is about the same as the biparietal diameter (the transverse ...
The late Larry Webster, D.C., Founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association(ICPA), developed a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment which enables chiropractors to establish balance in the pregnant womans pelvis and reduce undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments. This balanced state in the pelvis has been clinically shown to allow for optimal fetal positioning. The technique is known as the Webster Technique.. It is considered normal by some for a baby to present breech until the third trimester. Most birth practitioners are not concerned with breech presentations until a patient is 37 weeks along. Approximately 4% of all pregnancies result in a breech presentation.. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported in the July/August 2002 issue an 82% success rate of babies turning vertex when doctors of chiropractic used the Webster Technique. Further, the results from the study suggest that it may be beneficial to perform the Webster ...
Just found out my baby is breech. Two weeks ago I felt a large, very uncomfortable/painful movement. In the back if my mind I thought shit did this baby flip? And today found out it did. Im looking for any advice or suggestions from other moms. In previous pregnancys with a breech baby, could you flip your baby on its own without medical help? If so, what did you do? For those in previous pregnancys that chose to try for medical flipping, did it work? What was your experience having it done, working or not working? I have two choices: A) Do nothing and hope baby flips. Be monitored by US until 39 wks. If it doesnt then I will be scheduled for cesarean at 39 weeks. I have anterior placenta and cord is at cervix opening so fear of something happening if to cord if water breaks and baby breech. B) Do medical flip which is only has 50% possibility of working. Could cause water to break or fetal distress which will lead to emergency cesarean. Thanks for reading Im sorry its
When you have reached about 37 weeks of pregnancy your doctor may be able to turn your baby. This doesnt always work and sometimes even if the baby does rotate, it will go back into the breech position.. Your doctor will discuss the type of delivery with you. A normal vaginal birth may be attempted - however a Caesarean section is the most common way to deliver a baby lying in a breech position.. ...

Meconium-stained amniotic fluid, greenish in color, may indicate fetal distress caused by hypoxia in a vertex presentation or to compression of fetal intestinal tract in breech presentation. If delivery is to occur in area separate from the labor setting, transfer at this time ensures that infant is born where emergency medications and equipment are available, if needed. Ensures that trained personnel are present and reduces possibility of trauma to fetal vertex; allows gradual accommodation of skull bones to birth canal and overriding of sutures. • Transfer to delivery room, as appropriate, when vertex is visible at introitus in nullipara, or when multipara is 8 cm dilated. Remain with client and monitor pushing efforts as head emerges. Instruct client to pant during process. 3. • 4. . Mechanisms of Labor .

And I wish I had mentally prepared for a c section as soon as I found out she was breech. I had attended a birthing class and of course had not paid attention to the c section portion because that wasnt going to be me! Instead, at 37.5w after two failed external versions where I cried and and got a bruised belly, I was told I was having a c section in 1.5 weeks and I was no where near prepared. I wish I had mentally prepared sooner and if she flipped, I would have been pleasantly surprised. I felt like I had had 37.5w to prepare to have a vaginal birth and then only 1.5w in a hormonal state to make the switch ...

With the 38 super breech block out of the slide, its much easier to mill a an extra .019 out of sides of the 38 super breech face than having to weld and recut the hard-to-reach internal area of a stainless slide (not to mention custom extractor requirements). If the fear would be inset breech block movement, then small locking engagements could easily be milled into the slide cut that match and engage similar cuts in the the 38 super breech block. This combo would still be heavier than a standard folded slide to retain the mass needed for 10mm lockup ...

Finally, within the realm of labor and birth, one quickly learns to expect the unexpected. Sometimes a woman will have a quick and easy labor when professionals believed only a cesarean was possible. For example, women who have previously had a cesarean are sometimes told that they will always give birth that way. Yet at our clinic, one out of two women who have previously had cesareans succeed in giving birth vaginally. Nor do breech deliveries always justify the operation, although this has, nevertheless, become almost the rule in many conventional hospitals. From our experience with breech babies, we have found that by observing the natural progression of first-stage labor, we will get the best indication of what to expect at the last moment. This means we do nothing that will interfere with first-stage labor: no Pitocin, no bathing in the pool, no mention of the word "breech." If all goes smoothly, we have reason to believe the second stage of labor will not pose any problems. Our only ...

Within 24hrs of the birth of my first daughter, my rainbow baby, I knew something was wrong with me. I had no idea at the time what it was and no one else saw the warning signs. I also didnt care. My daughter was born via urgent c-section due to breech presentation and an extremely fast, progressing labor. She was born 7 weeks early and was in the hospital for a month to grow and learn to eat - I was too busy to focus on myself. Finally,when my girl was 10 weeks old, I recognized that what I was feeling wasnt normal. Sleeping 4hrs in 4 days and massive weight loss wasnt normal either. I felt like I was in a deep dark hole being pushed down by the weight of an elephant, on my chest, further and further into darkness. I didnt know which way was up nor how to get out. I couldnt put this into words at the time. I would cry all day, every day. I hid in the back of my closet, trying to escape my thoughts and feelings. I wanted to run far away from it all. Surely my baby didnt need me, my husband ...

8:15am - Scrub in and start our c-section. This patient had to have one because her baby had breech presentation (butt down instead of head down). The NP working with us was my doctors first assist, and I was second. He made the incision, went through a couple layers, got the baby out, and handed it to me. I suctioned her mouth and nose and handed her off to the nurses. Getting the baby out is quick, but then you gotta put everything back together. After delivering the placenta, the doc sutured everything back together and I got to throw a few knots during the process. Next came my favorite part, getting to close! During my first c-section I only got to do a little suturing, but this time I closed her whole incision and was very excited when I got compliments on how "pretty" it looked! My work here is done ...

Once the doctors realized what was going on, they told me they wanted me to have a c-section. WHAT?! A c-sec for a 2 pound baby? I was indignant! My third baby had been almost 10 lbs. But, they explained to me that my baby was breech (which I already knew) and for preemies, their heads are more disproportionate to their bodies than full term babies. Apparently, sometimes when a preemie is breech, they will begin to be born before the mom is fully dilated, but then their head gets caught. I did not feel at all convinced that this was a big enough risk that I should submit to a c-section. I had done enough reading to know way more than I wanted to about the risks of the surgery, plus the risks of whatever pain relief I would choose. The doctors stressed that the combination of the breech risks, plus not knowing what other issues my baby might be facing at such an early gestation, that a c-sec would be the best thing. They were very respectful of our concern about having unneeded surgery. We told ...
William Smellie helped to incorporate scientific medicine into the process of childbirth in eighteenth century Britain. As a male physician practicing in childbirth and female reproductive health (man-midwife), Smellie developed and taught procedures to treat breech fetuses, which occur when a fetus fails to rotate its head towards the birth canal during delivery. Throughout his career, Smellie compiled a wealth of information about female anatomy in his writings. He modified medical technology such as the obstetrical forceps, an instrument used to maneuver the fetus during childbirth.. Format: Articles Subject: People, Reproduction ...
At 38 weeks, we decided to try an ECV. It was honestly the worst experience I have ever had in my life. It was very painful and my body had such an adverse reaction to the whole experience that the OBs performing it had never seen it happen- I tried to breathe slow and deep, but somehow depleted my body of CO2 and ended up going into tetany seizure. It started in my hands as they began to curl and tense up, and the sensation traveled up my arms into my neck and even my throat, where it reached a point where I almost couldnt speak. Taijas heart rate decelerated and the procedure stopped. It took a few minutes of oxygen for my body to unfurl (I literally could not move my hands or fingers at ALL). Once I had recovered, the OB decided to check the ultrasound one more time, to confirm what she suspected: that the umbilical cord was wrapped around Taijas neck. It was. She strongly discouraged us against trying a vaginal breech birth. She offered us an appointment with the Best Birth Clinic to have ...

In Dublin hospitals, nine out of 10 babies in the feet-first position are delivered by caesarean section, according to Irish researchers.
After a little kerfuffle about whether they were 35 weeks or later, some steriods and a little nifedipine to try to slow the labor down (didnt work) later she was shortly complete and asking to push. A short while later she pushed her first 2.8kilo baby boy into my hands. I quickly clamped and cut his cord, and we auscultated twin B who was sounding very happy. MW asked me to feel for a presenting part - I reached up and felt what felt like tiny toes inside the second bag of waters. Several minutes tick past as we waited for her contractions to pick up again, and for that presenting part (no one was overly convinced we had either a breech or a vertex presenting). To my inexperienced hands, it seemed like it could have been a head, or perhaps a compound presentation (a hand?) to engage in the pelvis. A couple of contractions later, as baby sank further down into the pelvis, the bag was broken, and in a rush of fluid and fresh meconium, a footling breech babe slid out. Another boy, about 700gms ...
For an unplanned pregnancy, we were certainly surprised when we discovered two little beings on the first ultrasound. We had initially planned a homebirth, with our midwife Jane Palmer who had supported us at our daughters birth at home one year ago. However due to the increased risks associated with twins, we decided to opt for a hospital birth.

Im at 34 weeks here, and other than a premature labor scare that just turned out to be an irritable uterus, Im doing fairly well. Im trying to come to terms with the fact that these babies are almost certainly going to enter the world via c-section since they are both still breech. Oh, and to make things a bit worse, my platelet counts were low, so theres even a small chance I cant have an epidural (or spinal) and will require general anesthesia for that c-section. Sigh. Theres a large part of me that just wants to throw a tantrum about how its just not fair-- so many people have easier 2nd births, and here I am with breech twins that require a c-section and the possibility of needing general anesthesia. Oh well. I just had another platelet count done, so hopefully that will come back high enough that I can at least not have to worry about needing general anesthesia ...
Your health care provider may tell you whether your baby is headfirst or feet- or bottom-first (called breech position). Dont worry if your baby is in the breech position right now - most babies will switch positions on their own.
We have told you about these new children, and that is why your children are so unusual and you know they are. Many in the audience who have grandchildren are really seeing it; the kids are different. So you might say, "Well its too bad that we cant do that ourselves, raise our DNA efficiency." Well, you can! For the energy of the planet is alert and ready to send the signal to the old soul who starts to understand that they can change their own fields through the templates that float in them, through consciousness, pure intent, and through that which is compassion. You can change the quantum "print" of DNA with compassion! We have said that from the beginning, so let me summarize this in simple words that are not scientific. Go slow, my partner.

June 2009. Depression is not something normally shared and I rarely discuss my personal battle with family or friends. I agreed to write this hopefully assisting others who battle serious depression.. I suffered from depressive episodes for a large part of my life. The depression cycle would last from a few weeks to as long as 6 months. As a teenager I thought about the two options for my life; the first choice ends the pain of living, the second choice revolved around learning to live with the pain. Each time I thought about the choice, I chose life because I knew depression would not last forever. As an adult, I learned to recognize the first symptoms of a depressive cycle working toward not letting the depression overtake my life.. In college, my longest episode lasted over 8 months and at the time I seriously thought about different types of therapy. In the end, I choose not to pursue therapeutic treatment for two very simple reasons. The first option I understood required taking medications ...

My favourite memory with Spike would be from the day that I got him. To get to the house we were living in at the time you had to go about a kilometre down a dirt driveway and cross an old wooden bridge over a narrow creek. The bridge was an old rickety thing. It had no side rails, there were small gaps between the planks and it creaked because most of the planks were loose.. I had asked my partner to walk Spike up the driveway while a friend and I followed behind in the car, but when they got to the bridge Spike stopped and despite all the persisting in the world he simply refused to cross. We stopped the car behind them and I got out.. I walked over and took the lead rope from my partner and stood with Spike for a few minutes. Then I gave him a rub on the face and the neck and simply spoke to him. I dont remember exactly what I said, Im sure it was a lot of nothing but it felt right. We mustve stood like that for a good 10 minutes or so before I asked him if hed cross the bridge with me. I ...

Kate shares her story of getting an unexpected pressure injury following the birth of her baby.. On the day of her elective caesarean, Kate was focused on getting through the surgery safely with a healthy baby.. I arrived at 7 am and was prepped for surgery as my baby was breech, but I was left waiting for several hours due to other emergency presentations. By this time, I had started to go into labour and when the umbilical cord prolapsed I was whisked into theatre for an emergency caesarean.. She delivered a beautiful healthy baby girl in 45 seconds but had to face other complications; a torn bladder meaning a catheter was put in place. The postnatal wards were full, so she was kept in the delivery suite overnight.. When I finally made it home, I noticed the skin over my tailbone was extremely tender and hot to touch. It took a couple of days but the skin turned hard, like the top of a large blister and eventually peeled off.. I later discovered that this was a pressure injury and that it ...
So I had my obgyn appointment on Monday morning and learned that my baby is very healthy in there! We found out the gender as well and my LO (little one) is a baby girl! Her name is going to be Skylar Ann. Im so glad shes healthy I had a bunch of worries leading up to the appointment. Found out that shes pretty big I was 18 weeks 5 days at the appointment and she weighs already 11 ounces. My ultrasound tech even said that shes a big girl. I was just wondering if that could cause any problems or if it just means shes going to be a big baby? I am 510 and my SO (significant other) is 66. the only problem she said was that Skylar is currently breech but said not to worry since its early on anyways and she was doing karate kicks in there! Im just excited shes healthy
I was raised a Shaklee kid so I have had the knowledge of how important our health is from a very young age. To this day I still carry the same out for my baby Pierce. After my pregnancy I realized even more how important it was to keep getting the nutrients I needed so that I could give Pierce the best nutrients for him. I breast-fed so I knew that whatever was going into my body was directly going into his. I incorporated eating a clean diet, taking the most natural and safest supplements and trying to get lots of rest was the best thing I could do for Pierce and myself.. My pregnancy consisted of giving birth to Pierce by a C-Section. Pierce was breech for about five months and the doctors said there was no way he was going to turn! Even with swimming, working out and lifting nothing got him to turn. I guess he was just preparing me for his strong will while he was in the womb so it wouldnt be a surprise to me when he was out of the womb! He definitely has proven himself to be strong-willed! ...

Before the version attempt, you may be given an injection of tocolytic medicine to relax the uterus and prevent uterine contractions. The most commonly used tocolytic medicine is terbutaline.. While the uterus is relaxed, your doctor will attempt to turn the fetus. With both hands on the surface of your abdomen-one by the fetuss head and the other by the buttocks-the doctor pushes and rolls the fetus to a head-down position. You will feel discomfort during a version procedure, especially if it causes the uterus to contract. The amount of discomfort depends on how sensitive your abdomen is and how hard the doctor presses on your abdomen during the version attempt.

Factors associated with FHR abnormalities during and after ECV are estimated fetal weight (EFW) and the duration of the ECV-attempt.. FHR abnormalities during and after ECV are not associated with fetal distress during labor or mode of delivery.. In our study 9% of the ECVs were complicated by FHR abnormalities. In the literature abnormal CTG findings are reported up to 5.7% [7]. Because the FHR was checked both during and after ECV, we found a higher number (9%) of FHR abnormalities.. Various mechanisms have been proposed to account for FHR abnormalities such as temporary hypoxemia caused by decreased utero-placental bloodflow [8]. Since placental reserve is less in small for gestational age fetuses, they may be more prone to FHR abnormalities because of hypoxemia. In the literature this is confirmed by measurements of the pre-ECV mean cerebral artery pulsatility index which shows an association between a non-reassuring fetal status after ECV and brain-sparing effects in the mildly compromised ...

Developmental dysplasia of the hip refers to a continuum of abnormalities in the immature hip that can range from subtle dysplasia to dislocation. The identification of risk factors, including breech presentation and family history, should heighten a physicians suspicion of developmental dysplasia of the hip. Diagnosis is made by physical examination. Palpable hip instability, unequal leg lengths, and asymmetric thigh skinfolds may be present in newborns with a hip dislocation, whereas gait abnormalities and limited hip abduction are more common in older children. The role of ultrasonography is controversial, but it generally is used to confirm diagnosis and assess hip development once treatment is initiated. Bracing is first-line treatment in children younger than six months. Surgery is an option for children in whom nonoperative treatment has failed and in children diagnosed after six months of age. It is important to diagnose developmental dysplasia of the hip early to improve treatment results and
The inclusion criteria for skin-to-skin contact candidates were foundational to the protocol development. The families included experienced nonemergent, elective, repeat cesarean deliveries, or cesarean deliveries performed because of a failure to progress/dilate or breech presentation. The infants were greater than 38 weeks of gestation and in no acute distress. Role responsibilities were developed for the neonatal registered nurse, certified registered nurse anesthetist/anesthesiologist, circulating registered nurse, delivering physician, scrub technician, the mother, and the mothers support person. The protocol included a surgical unit that was setup to allow the mother to select music, provided the use of dim lighting, provided extra sterile plastic cord clamp on field, and positioned warmed blankets and an infant cap near the head of the mothers bed. The protocol of family education was to discuss with the mother and her support person one of the following three options: (a) observe the ...
Because of chiropractics safe and gentle approach in pregnancy, a lot of heads are turning in the healthcare industry. The American Pregnancy Association addresses the benefits of chiropractic for pregnant women:. During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints: • Protruding abdomen and increased back curve • Pelvic changes • Postural adaptations. Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy…With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, and the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations may be avoided altogether. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for ...
This is your Pea in the Podcast for week 32 of your pregnancy. Im Bonnie Petrie joined by Dr. Laurie Swaim, an obstetrician with Houston Womens Care Associates in Houston, Texas.. This week your baby may still be bottom down in the breech position but thats okay unless theyre born now. "The most common cause of breech is prematurity and thats going to be the room flipping around and their amniotic fluid volume is still pretty big with respect to the size of the baby. I think its the greatest at 34 weeks, the ratio of fluid to baby. So we dont worry about baby being malpositioned until about 36 weeks." Still some moms-to-be worry if their baby is still breech they will be breech at birth and they try to do some things to encourage them to turn. Dr. Swaim says thats fine but she thinks that it might be, right now anyway, a waste of time. "I have no problem with people going to chiropractors if they have back problems or whatever, have at it, but all that kind of stuff if they want to do ...

The Birth of 11 lb 14 oz Levi Andrew. Levi was born into our family that includes his ten siblings, on Valentines Day, 2017. This is his birth story.. Levis position the entire pregnancy had been some form of transverse or oblique presentation. Never once did he attempt a vertex or breech position. My babies had hung out in crazy positions before, but as we approached 36 weeks, I became more concerned about his presentation. As a childbirth educator, and mama of ten other children, I know how important fetal positioning is for a smooth birth. Add to this that I personally felt he was my largest baby, and I knew we could be getting into a pickle that would be problematic for my natural birth plan. I began getting Webster chiropractic adjustments, doing Spinning babies, using homeopathics, and practicing good positioning for myself. My OB is incredibly supportive and non-alarmist. At 38.5 weeks we decided to attempt an external cephalic version (ECV) to turn him vertex. My OB was successful in ...
I CRAVE: my cravings have kicked into high gear this week... The list: McFlurry with oreos and fudge, potato salad, cream cheese, 7-up, chocolate milk, cottage cheese, bean burrito from Bakers. I have sent Dave to McDonalds twice for the McFlurry.... I THINK: Andrew being breech scares me a little bit; Ive been reading a lot online about breech babies and how to help them rotate (spinningbabies.com). I even watched a few videos of women giving birth to breech babies vaginally. As my friends pointed out this week, Ive always joked that I wanted to be knocked out for him to come out and that a c-section would be great because I wouldnt have to deal with the pain of giving birth. Now that a c-section is a greater possiblity, I am willing to do crazy sounding things like laying on an ironing board head down, trying to get him to flip, so a vaginal birth is possible. Strange I know... Also, I get it when Tawni told me that Id be done being pregnant at this stage. Im ready for him to be here ...

Most babies are positioned head down in the last four weeks in the womb, but if your baby is breech, and you are past your 36th week of pregnancy, your health-care professional may try to turn the baby around so its head is down near the birth canal. A technique called version is used to gently roll the baby around so the head is in the best position for labour and delivery. Your health-care professional will place his or her hands on your abdomen, then push or lift. You may be given a medication to relax the uterus and make the version procedure easier. During the procedure, your babys heart rate will be monitored and ultrasound may be used to check the babys position. Very rarely, version may cause problems with the babys heart rate or lead to early labour. Your health-care professional will be ready to deliver your baby if necessary, vaginally or by C-section. Sometimes, the baby will move back into breech position. If you believe your baby has switched positions again, discuss this at ...
Our Sim Lab is equipped with a Noelle Simulator, a programmable mannequin that allows our residents to hone their skills with routine procedures such as vaginal deliveries, and operative assisted deliveries (forceps and vacuum). The mannequin is also programmable to simulate complications to allow residents to practice skills such as breech delivery, reduction of shoulder dystocia and management of postpartum hemorrhage. We are not limited to the Lab as we have taken Noelle to our clinic, Labor and Delivery and our lecture hall for didactics. We have brought in Ms. Julie Arafeh, a renowned obstetric simulation expert from Stanford, to add to our simulation skills. We are now working with the nursing department to expand our utilization of simulation to improve the communication and cooperative efforts necessary for patient safety. Our department also offers simulation training in gynecology. See the section on "fundamentals of laparoscopy" The hospital also has a trainer for robotic surgery. Our ...

Figure 3. Fleece rot is the major predisposing cause of body strike in sheep. The dermatitic exudate is seen as the brownish, cakey material in the fleece. The green colouration is produced by the opportunist pathogen, Pseudomonas areuginosa.. Why is body strike, and not breech strike, the main type of fly strike ? Because most Merino sheep in Australia have been mulesed since the 1960s, breech strike is seen infrequently. Mulesing removes breech skin wrinkles (with shears) so that the skin, once healed, is difficult to wet and dries quickly. Probably the only time breech strike becomes a problem in mulesed sheep is when sheep scour and faecal soiling occurs.. If mulesing stops, breech strike will automatically become the No. 1 problem. But only if the sheep are wrinkly. If the sheep are plain bodied, nothing happens, no fly strike of any kind.. Body strike outbreaks are confined to very wet periods during the warm months of the year. However, the incidence of body strike in young Merino sheep ...

U.S., May 11 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03140683) titled Predictors of Scar Dehiscence in Patients With Previous Caesarean Section on May 3. Brief Summary: In recent decades, the percentage of Cesarean section deliveries has dramatically increased in most countries. Concomitantly, the rates of vaginal birth after Cesarean have decreased steadily. The pregnant women with previous Cesarean section face a difficult choice for their next delivery between a trial of labor after Cesarean or repeat caesarean section delivery. The performance of multiple Cesarean section exposes women to greater risks of complications; furthermore, the risk of complications increases with each subsequent Cesarean section. In fact, women with previous Cesarean section are more likely to experience short and long-term maternal complications in future pregnancies, or a trial of labor after Cesarean, with the risk of [uterine dehiscence, uterine rupture, genitourinary ...
