Baby comes when baby is ready
Maybe baby is being held in a non optimal lie?
The manual and accompanying videos ‘What Dads Can Do’ takes touch to a new level – and mum will melt under his fingers.. .a great oxytocin boost.
Look to what I have out together after decades of professional maternal care. I suggest inspirational and self help information is freely available on this site – and on this site
Before you do anything . . . please be kind to all concerned.
Maybe baby is supposed to be just where s/he is.
‘Stress’ (being annoyed about anything – not getting ‘your’ own way) is a large reason why things start looking interesting – you can’t change the world, but you can change you response to it.
If you have just landed here, and are in later pregnancy – please read all on this site – set her up to win . ..
In the efforts to provide a few handy rescues –
here is the move from lateral lie/OP position or out of breech
What most think that they know –
a ‘magic’ point to play with . . .
Please do not start there
Instead . . .
Ask WHY baby is in an apparently non standard spot
Start with some ‘undoing the stress’ massage below and get the helpful informative and effective tools I have peppered through this page as above – this is something I almost NEVER need to do or suggest as we can be so much less reactive – and thus more useful leading into a birth – by opening mum’s pelvis to love.
Seriously – go away from ‘the problem’ as mum is not a collection of bits . .
Breech Resolution? Baby in a ‘wrong lie’ and wondering why the spinning babies info was not enough – that going to the chiro/osteo/P.T. seems to not keep stable? That you want to make sure. . . as VBAC is your choice?
Start with more abundant and wholesome ingredients needed for sanity and easy lactation anyway.
Do not want an induction – you want to get baby in the sweet spot . .
Easy – all in hand – invest in the eBook resource kit – and work it all out yourself .
Here is a demonstration on how to moxa the toe point – mum is not to – as she is not in an extended position – and here is the thing – need to get baby comfy where it is more spacious . . .so optimally fetal positioning is about easy exit.
This point is usually seen as the magic cure – until you try it.
There is a reason baby is in whatever position is deemed ‘not right’.
Please do not do this moxa trick more than twice. In fact I rarely need to in clinic – as if baby is not moving there is a reason – so possibly .. . work slightly backwards – Why is baby in a different position than is considered as being optimal?
Find out – start with improving life for all – improve mum’s nutrition and posture and then see what may be needed – often this ‘breech emergency’ is just a way to get mum to focus on her baby, not her external life. There is a need to bond and to get serious – rather than having a pregnancy on top of her busy schedule/life. Who said being breech is a problem anyway? Possibly baby is safest there and can easily come if all calm down and let her /him sort it out themselves. (Please also go to www.spinningbabies.com)
Please look to the eBook series found here as it holds a photographic essays and other women’s stories on what made the difference for them.
Start with sacral fan moxa . .
To calm the area locally and also mum – and have magnesium oil on hand to do the same – and use multiple times daily as more magnesium (and way less calcium than is usually taken) is the key here – as in taking in board a lot more daily Vit D. See the eBooks below for more
After the moxa, next comes the massage – and this is quite painful so start slow and shallow and build it up . .
Often all that is needed is more magnesium, or rest, more reassurance and nature will takeover.
If you want to assist – at least to clear the way so the pelvis is working with not against you – start here.
