Breech Baby? What You Need to Know

Homeopathic Measures
If your baby is found to be breech close to your due date, try homeopathic Pulsatilla 200c once a day. Repeat one more day if the baby hasn't turned yet. If your baby found to be breech early, Pulsatilla 30c take three to five pellets under the tongue twice daily for two weeks. Or try using homeopathic Pulsatilla 6X one tablet under the tongue four times a day. Take Pulsatilla tablets, then do breech tilt.

Voices and Music
It is well documented that babies can hear in uteri. Maybe your baby has turned to hear your voice or heartbeat better. Have your partner or a friend talk to the baby close to the bottom of your belly. Try placing earphones on your lower abdomen and play music (try whale sounds) to your baby.

Cold Things
While doing breech tilt, place a bag of frozen peas on the back side of the baby's head- babies tend to move away from the cold. Place a flashlight or music close to the vagina- babies tend to move toward the light and music.

Acupressure Points
The body is all interconnected and there are points that can be stimulated to help the baby change position. There are different techniques that can be used to simulate these pressure points. There are acupuncture needles or a heat treatment known as moxibustion. You can also apply pressure yourself, using your fingernail. If there is an acupuntrurist available who is familiar with these techniques, try it!

This can be done anytime you are relaxed. Try it in the tub or while doing tilts. Imagine the baby turning somersaults. Breathe deeply. Search yourself to be free of fear and ready for the baby.
