3 Breech Baby Positions and How to Correct the Fetus Position so that a Normal Birth Can Be

Stressed out by the breech position of the baby? Don’t give up just yet, Mother. Let’s get to know the three types of breech baby positions and how to overcome them so that they can still give birth normally.

Not all breech babies automatically have to have a caesarean section. Therefore, Mother, don’t stress, especially if the pregnancy is not yet 36 weeks old.

Even though the baby is diagnosed with a breech position, pregnant women can still give birth normally. This naturally happens because some women naturally experience it.



“About 30 percent of babies are breech at 30 to 32 weeks, only 3 percent are still breech at term (37 weeks),” explained Ellen Giesbrecht, ob-gyn at BC Women’s Hospital, Vancouver, as reported by Today’s Parent.

Let’s get to know the type of breech baby position and how to overcome it.

3 Breech Baby Positions

See a more detailed explanation as follows:

– Frank breech

There are several types of breech baby positions. One of them is Frank Breech.

In this position, the baby’s buttocks (not their head) are above the cervix. While the baby’s feet are far away near his face folded like a tucked penknife position.

– Footling breech

Another type of breech baby position is the footling breech. This position makes one or both legs under the baby’s bottom or straight and the other bends.

– Complete breech

Finally, the type of complete breech baby position. This position makes the baby’s buttocks position above the cervix.

Then the position of the baby’s feet is under the pelvis with knees bent up to his chest.

How to deal with breech baby position

Check out the full explanation below:

1. The breech tilt

Try doing the breech tilt to change the breech position. How does the technique do it?

While lying on your back, use a large, firm pillow to lift your hips about a foot off the floor. Do this thrice daily for 10 to 15 minutes.

Mothers can do this technique when the baby is active and on an empty stomach. When doing this technique, concentrate on the baby while relaxing, especially in the stomach area.

2. Technique webster

Chiropractic, more specifically the Webster technique, can help mothers overcome the breech baby’s position so they don’t have to have a caesarean section. This technique is used to treat asymmetry in the pelvis and hip bones.

“This method is about aligning the pelvis and optimizing space for descent but trust your instincts,” says Ruth Comfort, a registered midwife in the South Community Birth Program and Assistant Head of Midwifery, BC Women’s Hospital and St. Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver.
