In preparation for birth, the baby should turn to the vertex or head down position a few weeks prior to delivery. If the baby remains in the head up position, it is termed breech. Breech positioning may increase the risks of complications during delivery. There are also abnormal stressors on the baby’s body while in the uterus when the baby is not in the vertex position after then. There are many options, both invasive and non-invasive, available for moms to help achieve the head down position for her baby.
