Help for Breech Babies
My baby is breech, now what?
In reading this, you or someone you know may have found out that their baby is breech. If you are looking for a safe and gentle way to encourage your baby to change from a breech position to a head down position, then hypnosis can help. Often breech babies are in a breech position because the muscles in and around the uterus are tight and are not allowing baby to turn easily. Feelings of fear and anxiety may be keeping these muscles tight.
Through the use of relaxation and gentle suggestions, many mothers are able to completely relax and release tension from this area enabling babies to turn all on their own. This method is extremely gentle and safe for both mothers and babies. The only side-affect is wonderful deep relaxation. In a clinical study, hypnosis was found to be 81% effective in turning babies head down. I invite you to read about the study to learn more.
"I was in my ninth month of pregnancy and my baby was in a breech position. My doctor had booked an ultrasound and told me about the chances of a cesarean section if he decided not to turn around. We tried all the tricks we had heard about (like the flashlight, ironing board, ect!) and I decided to ask Marie if she knew of any yoga positions that may help and she told me about hypnosis. It was relaxing, safe, and an experience that furthered bonding with my baby. Marie had told me that babies usually turned within 48 hours, despite this I thought he would turn right away with her instructions! When he didn't turn during the session, I felt terrible that I would have to go to class and tell Marie that I was the first one she did it with that it didn't work! But that night I listened to the CD and early the next morning I woke up because of the acrobatics going on in my belly. He turned and we subsequently had a wonderful natural birth experience. I continued to listen to the CD throughout my pregnancy to get the benefits of relaxation - and to keep him in the right position!" ~Allisson, mom to Elliott
