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.
The artificial alteration of the fetal position to facilitate birth.
Extraction of the FETUS by means of abdominal HYSTEROTOMY.
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 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.
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.
An infant born at or after 42 weeks of gestation.
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.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.

Extraction of the fetus by abdominal hysterotomy anytime following a previous cesarean.
The number of offspring a female has borne. It is contrasted with GRAVIDITY, which refers to the number of pregnancies, regardless of 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.
An infant during the first month after birth.
The mass or quantity of heaviness of an individual at BIRTH. It is expressed by units of pounds or kilograms.
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.
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.
Facilities having programs intended to promote and maintain a state of physical well-being for optimal performance and health.
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.
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.

Monitoring of FETAL HEART frequency before birth in order to assess impending prematurity in relation to the pattern or intensity of antepartum UTERINE CONTRACTION.
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.
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.

Delivery of an infant through the vagina in a female who has had a prior cesarean section.
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).

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)

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. Attempts to encourage your baby to turn will form part of the care which may be offered to you.. ...

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 ...
Introduction: The most common fractures during vaginal delivery occur in the clavicle, humerus, and femur. Cesarean section reduces the chances of a child having a birth injury. However, in some difficult extractions, long bone fractures may occur. Cesarean section further reduces the incidence of birth injuries, especially in a breech delivery. Maneuvers employed during cesarean section, energetic traction, improper uterine incisions, and contracted uterus may cause these injuries. In the medical literature, there are few articles highlighting the occurrence of long bone fractures during cesarean section. There has been no case reported with a combined bilateral humerus and femur fracture in the medical literature. Case Report: A 2-day-old neonate born after cesarean section for breech presentation in a twin pregnancy presented with restricted movements of both his arms and right leg. Infantogram revealed bilateral humerus and right femur fracture. Biochemical tests were normal, and there were no other

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.. ...

Turn Turn Turn: Options for Turning and Birthing Breech Babies. Yost, H. (2010, December 1). Turn Turn Turn: Options for Turning and Birthing Breech Babies. Retrieved from http://icpa4kids.org/Wellness-Articles/turn-turn-turn-options-for-turning-and-birthing-breech-babies.html. A breech presentation refers to the position of the baby in the uterus. It is normal, up to the seventh month of pregnancy, for the baby to be in a head-up, or breech, position. After the seventh month, any position other than vertex (head-down) may not only challenge the possibility of a vaginal birth, but put abnormal stressors on the developing baby.. The risk is small; research shows that approximately 4 percent of full-term (38-42 week) pregnancies are breech presentations. There are several causes of a breech presentation. A structurally altered pelvis is a likely possibility; this can be caused by rickets (severe vitamin D deficiency), poor bone and joint development, or structural or functional pelvic compromise. ...

Typically, while a baby is in the womb, it is in a breech presentation. Physicians arent usually concerned with the babys position until about 37 weeks of pregnancy. Approximately four percent of deliveries present in a breech position, which is dangerous and potentially life-threatening.. Chiropractors are trained in a technique known as the Webster technique which aims to properly align and balance the pelvis specifically for the delivery of the baby. A balanced pelvis helps to reduce stress on the uterus and surrounding ligaments.. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study that found that the Webster technique helped to correct breech presentation in 82% of cases. The report also found that the Webster technique could be used as soon as the eighth month of pregnancy if a womans baby is in a breech presentation.. It is essential to develop a relationship with your chiropractor early so that they understand your specific case and can respond according to ...
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, ...

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 second breech birth was to be the 12th baby of an Old Order Amish couple. The mother had had several complicated births before; most of her births had been long and difficult. She was originally booked with one of my partners, who also works two-day shifts sometimes at an area hospital. My partners intuition told her that she might miss this birth, so she took me and another partner to meet the woman in case we were needed. Checking the babys presentation, I found it to be a frank breech. As easy as could be, I nudged the babys head from breech to vertex position, then asked the mother to get up and walk around for a while, in hopes that the baby would remain head-down.. That night the father asked his neighbor to phone me to say that his wife was in labor. When my partner and I reached her side, I found the baby presenting breech again, and the water bag had broken. With the water broken and the babys bottom deep in the pelvis, external version didnt seem a good idea.. Labor was hard. ...

h2,Breech position,/h2, ,p,In most vaginal deliveries, the babys head passes through the birth canal first and the rest of the babys body follows. In a breech delivery, the babys feet, knees, or buttocks appear first. Fifty to 70% of breech babies have their legs extended up along their body in a pike position where the feet are by the ears. Some have both legs pulled up in a cannonball position. Others have at least one leg extended downward. ,/p, ,p,A breech position during pregnancy is not necessarily a cause for concern. Many times, a baby may assume the breech position during pregnancy, but then will flip into the traditional head-down position shortly before delivery. However, in about 3% to 5% of deliveries, a baby will assume the breech position shortly before childbirth and stay in that position until delivery. ,/p, ,p,Breech delivery is a complication during childbirth because the largest part of the babys body, the head, is last to pass through the birth canal. Sometimes in a ...
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 ...

There are a lot of alternatives to an ECV in trying to turn a baby - gravity manipulation, acupressure, homeopathy, herbs, visualization and more. But the first thing to do is to try to figure out why the baby is currently breech. Your baby and your body working together can be smart, and it may be that theres something about the pregnancy that requires a breech or cesarean delivery.. It would be helpful if you could sit down with somebody and review the ultrasound to look for clues about the placement of the placenta or any cord issues that might favor a breech position. You also probably should do some meditation to communicate with the baby and seek some inner guidance about whats going on. What are your fears? Exploring your fears and concerns involving your upcoming birth or parenting a new baby can be very beneficial. Read Relaxation and Visualization (below) for more on this.. It is important to pursue both medical and metaphysical paths for determining if its safe to try to turn the ...
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

OBJECTIVE: To compare the obstetric outcome of in vitro fertilization pregnancies with normally conceived pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN: The obstetric outcome of in vitro fertilization pregnancies achieved in 763 British residents at two in vitro fertilization clinics resulting in the births of 961 babies were compared by means of the relative risk statistic with a control group of naturally conceived primiparous pregnancies matched by maternal age and multiplicity of pregnancy. RESULTS: Twenty-five percent of in vitro fertilization pregnancies were multiple pregnancies. The incidence of singleton term breech presentation was similar to that among controls. As compared with controls there was an increased incidence among in vitro fertilization pregnancies of vaginal bleeding and hypertension requiring hospitalization (p less than 0.001) and cesarean births (p less than 0.001) and, among in vitro fertilization singleton pregnancies, an increased incidence of intrauterine growth retardation (p less than 0.05)

Posterior breech presentation is discussed in this post along with possible strategies for resolving the rare occurence of a posterior deflexed head.
Near the end of a womans pregnancy, obstetricians use ultrasound to check that the baby is poised to be born head-first. Since breech vaginal deliveries (with the feet or rear end first) are risky for both mom and child, many physicians opt to schedule a c-section if the baby isnt head-down at the end of pregnancy.. However, before they take that step, doctors can perform a procedure called an external cephalic version (or simply version) to try to turn the baby. To do this, they push on the mothers pregnant abdomen while carefully monitoring the baby with ultrasound. In the past, women were not given anesthesia during this procedure, but recent research has shown that administering anesthesia can make versions more successful, perhaps because the medications help to relax the womens abdominal muscles and allow the physician to use less pressure. Unsurprisingly, moms who receive pain relief are also happier with the process than those who dont.. But theres a wrinkle: Some physicians have ...
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.. ...
So what happens if your baby is in the breech position? This eMedTV page has the answer. It describes the different breech positions, what this means in terms of vaginal delivery, and if it is possible to get the baby to move to a head-down position.
By the end of a pregnancy, a fetus is typically positioned head-down (vertex), ready to pass head first through the birth canal. Sometimes a fetus is in a bottom-down, or breech, position as the due date approaches. Postural management is a way of attempting to turn a fetus from a breech to a vertex position by lying or...

The potential risks of breech delivery are a concern for both pregnant women and midwives alike. An external cephalic version involves the manipulation of the fetus through the maternal abdomen to a cephalic presentation. It a simple and practical solution that carries minimal risk.
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. If your fetus appears to be in distress, as shown by a sudden drop in heart rate, the procedure is stopped.. If a first attempt at version is not successful in turning the fetus, your doctor may suggest another attempt, possibly with epidural anesthesia to help you relax and to reduce pain associated with the procedure. Epidural ...

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 ...
We herein report two cases of cyst of the filum terminale, diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound in the second and third trimesters, respectively. The first case, a 32-year-old primigravida, was referred to our center at 20weeks for a detailed anomaly scan because of a suspected periconceptional toxoplasmosis infection. Her medical and family histories were unremarkable except for obesity, with a body mass index of 35.3 kg/m2. Transabdominal ultrasound did not detect major fetal anomalies, but because of a persistent breech presentation sonographic assessment of the spine was completed with the aid of a transvaginal approach (Figure 1; Videoclip S1). At the level of L4, just caudal to the lower end of the conus medullaris and within the filum terminale, a fusiform anechoic unilocular cyst measuring 3×2mm was visualized. The cyst showed neither septations nor solid components, and was nonvascularized on high-definition color Doppler imaging (Videoclip S1). Using the three-dimensional multiplanar ...

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 ...
My birth story begins three years ago when at 35 weeks pregnant we discovered, much to our surprise, our baby girl was in a frank breech position.

Unfortunately,…. ...
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 ...

In the survey, women were asked whether they had requested a caesarean delivery. Among those who had a birth during 2001 2002, 50.7% responded in the affirmative; this compares with an overall figure of 44.7% for the decade preceding the survey. Mothers who resided in urban areas and the western region, those who had senior high school education and above, and those employed in professional and service sectors were more likely to respond in the affirmative to this question (results not shown separately).. Discussion. The increase in rates of caesarean delivery observed over time in our study population was not fully explained by the increase in the rates of institutional birth alone. Instead, they were likely to be driven by the twin pressures of obstetricians favouring recourse to caesarean delivery and women s demand for the procedure. The analysis demonstrated that use of antenatal care, especially ultrasound scanning, was also associated with a greater likelihood of caesarean delivery. The ...
Clinically, United States and Europe research show that using moxibustion increases the chance that a breech baby will turn to the head down position into normal birth. ...
The justification? An obstetrician told the judge that a c-section was necessary to protect the fetus from potential harm. The mother did not suffer from any mental health disorder, she had mental capacity, and she had agreed to labour naturally in hospital. Her crime? According to news reports, she was deemed high risk because she had had two previous c-sections and her baby was breech. She was in well-established labour when she was taken from her home by police and medical personnel.. Risk can never be a justification for authorising a violent physical assault on a woman. It is a very poor basis on which to make judicial decisions that have a long-lasting and profound effect on a persons physical integrity. Risk might sound appealingly scientific and rational, but it is not. The risk of uterine rupture is around 0.5%. Put another way, there is a 99.5% chance that it will not happen. Which way you look at it depends on your personal sensitivity to risk. Some obstetricians would present the ...

So during this lovely birth in which I got to love and adore this really cool, self-assured first time mother, I asked the doctor, Would you be comfortable not cutting the cord until either it stops pulsing or the baby transitions?

CESAREAN BIRTH or C-SECTION BIRTH- I have attended cesarean births that were planned, elected, emergent, and somewhere in between. Every birth is so different. As a doula, I feel responsible in holding space no matter what the plan becomes. If it is an elective C-section, you got it- Im there and 100% supporting my client and their wishes. If it is a breech baby and mom is scared or struggling with the news- Im there helping her with positions to potentially flip baby (if that is what mom even wants) or Im there to help ease the tension and increase the joy for the coming birth. If the birth we are about to experience is emergent and very serious in nature, Im 100% present for both the birthing parent AND the partner who are feeling out of control of the situation. Nothing is more important in my world in those hours.

Anyone else get this? I cant find it on Google anywhere! My baby is a massive wriggler! He was in the right position for birth on my 28 week appointment. But 3 days later, during a growth scan, he had turned from breech, to traverse and back to head down. This was all in the 10 minutes with the sonographer chasing him for measurements. Hes not small either hes on my 97th percentile, which is around a 9lb 6oz term weight. Yesterday I had to lie down because my back was killing me and he had wiggled into such a position that he had created 2 camel humps diagonally across my body. It absolutely hurt like hell and I had to get up and jump to move him back down. Does anyone know if these kind of strong movements cause any damage in the womb? Or is is just uncomfortable for me?

Blogger has been irking me no end not automatically allowing Name/URL as a commenters option, so Ill just chat with Emma here in my blog!
