Breech Baby turns with Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy may help pregnant women turn their breech baby around to the normal head-first, or vertex, position research has found.

A researcher at the University of Vermont, Burlington, used hypnosis with one hundred pregnant women whose baby’s were in the breech (feet-first) position between the thirty-seventh and fortieth week of gestation. The intervention group 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.

The study which appeared in the Archives of Family Medicine, reported that 81% of the baby’s in the hypnosis group moved to the vertex position, compared with 48% in the control group. Not surprisingly, hypnosis was most effective for the women motivated to use the technique.” – Natural Health Magazine, November-December 1995.
