Just want to add some pictures about external cephalic version...
External cephalic version is a way to try to turn a baby from breech position to vertex (head-down) position while it's still in the mother's uterus. In other words, external cephalic version means turning the baby from outside of the abdomen so that it's in the head-down position. Your doctor will use his or her hands on the outside of your abdomen to try to turn the baby (see the pictures below).
First step is:
Second step is:
"The baby is turned either forward or backward...."
... until the baby is in the vertex (head-down) position.
This procedures are usually done before the head of the baby engage in the upper pelvic gate. We also have to check the baby's heart rate before and after doing the procedures to make sure that the baby is fine. If there is deterioration of baby's heart rate, we must repositioning the baby to the previous position. Always ask your doctor for further information.
