Fetal position during pregnancy pictures

Optimal Fetal Positioning (OFP) describes movements and positions that mothers can do during pregnancy and labor to encourage babies to enter into a favorable position in the pelvis.
Pelvic rocking: helps jiggle the baby out of the pelvis to allow it to move into a more optimal position, loosens the joints and ligaments of the pelvis and uterus, and tones the abdominal and back muscles. While all of these techniques can help get a baby rotated and into an optimal fetal position, it is important to remember that pelvises and babies’ heads are still amazing at adapting. When a fetus is sitting in a breech or transverse position close to the end of pregnancy or right before birth, an external cephalic version, or version, may be performed. Normally, an external cephalic version is performed around 36-37 weeks of pregnancy or right before birth before the membranes have ruptured.


It involves wrapping a rebozo (“shawl”) under the bottom or belly of a pregnant mother, and shifting the shawl back and forth while raising the mother’s body slightly off the floor. Babies can still be born in posterior positions, with brow and face presentations, and in other “non-optimal” positions. Neither of these positions is ideal for birth, bit if we can try and keep him ROA and not posterior, it is likely he will switch to the more favourable LOA during labor. If needed she can try certain exercises and avoid certain positions, prior to delivery to help optimise baby’s position. In pregnancy and birth, we want the body to be able to open up, the pelvis to open and move, and the ligaments to stretch.


I have very bad stretch marks from my previous pregnancy which has left my skin very thin so with the pressure and the pulling .
