Turning Breech Babies

Turning breech babies - Babies usually turn around between 32 and 38 weeks of pregnancy.  I am therefore saddened to hear of mums whose babies are breech being told at 32 weeks they will need to have a caesarean. Hypnosis is a very powerful tool for turning breech babies and often babies remain turned.  It is a very gentle and comfortable way both for mother and baby. Using the techniques suggested and sometimes some hypnosis or EFT we have many great results at getting baby in the correct position.

For HypnoBirthing ® mums, often a phone call will suffice to turn a baby, however sometimes additional sessions are necessary. For non-HypnoBirthing ® mums, 1-3 sessions of hypnotherapy and/or EFT are usually required to turn baby.

A researcher at the University of Vermont, Burlington, USA, used hypnosis with 100 pregnant women whose babies were in the breech position between the 37th and 40th week of gestation.  The women received hypnosis with suggestions for general relaxation and release of fear and anxiety. While under hypnosis, the women were also asked why their baby was in the breech position.  81% of the babies in the hypnosis group moved to the vertex position, compared with 48% of the control group.  Hypnosis was most effective for the women motivated to use the technique.  Aside from the visualization involved, the deep relaxation of hypnosis can help your abdomen to relax enough to allow the baby to turn if it wants to.

"At the end of my pregnancy, despite practicing the techniques for getting baby into the right position, my baby turned at the end and was breech.  With just half an hour phone session with Jackie and 2 days practicing the suggestions, Finley (or baby if you don't want to use his name) turned into his birthing position."
