Hypnosis is an excellent tool for turning a breech baby to vertex (head down), since the baby is registered by the inner mind as part of the mother!
Turn Your Breech Baby, YES You Can! is a deep hypnosis track that encourages you to relax the muscles and any constriction around your baby, and it contains effective hypnotic suggestions for turning baby to the vertex, (head down) position, if that is the safest way for baby to be positioned. Baby will let you know! Hypnosis is excellent for turning a breech, since the baby is registered by the inner mind as part of the mother!
A study was done at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, by Lewis E. Mehl, MD, PhD Dept. of Psychiatry, entitled “Hypnosis and Conversion of the Breech to the Vertex Presentation”.
Results: 81% percent of the fetuses in the hypnosis/intervention group converted to vertex presentation compared with 48% of those in the comparison group. This difference was …
Conclusions: Motivated subjects can be influenced by a skilled hypnotherapist in such a manner that their fetuses have a higher incidence of conversion from breech to vertex presentation. Psychophysiological factors may influence the breech presentation and may explain this increased frequency of conversion to vertex presentation. (Arch Fam Med. 1994;3:881-887)

Mothers with breech babies may want to look into other natural breech turning techniques as well, to augment our Hypnobabies track. (Slant board, music, the Webster Technique, acupuncture, etc.)
One of our Hypno-Moms writes: “Just thought I’d share a happy story with you – my sweet babe has been lying transverse in my belly for months, and the other day I started thinking I needed to get her turned. I’m only 27 weeks pregnant but I have a uterine septum which can increase the changes of a malpositioned baby and make it difficult to turn them later in pregnancy when space gets tight. Plus I was feeling a bit uncomfortable having her wrapped around my sides so much. My belly actually looked funny because it was so wide.
I decided to listen to the Turn Your Breech Baby CD. I laid down while my older son was napping, listened to it, and once it was over felt moved to do one short (5 second or so) downward dog stretch and then a few pelvic tilts. Then I got up, looked at my belly, and it was a COMPLETELY different shape – much more round and less wide. I also had more pressure lower in my pelvis and could feel immediately that she had moved.
She’s now kicking in the center of my body rather than around at my sides. I had a prenatal visit on Saturday and my midwife confirmed that baby is now head-down, with her bottom against my bellybutton, head facing my back. Amazing results after only listening to the Breech track once! 🙂 Hurray and thank you SO much to Kerry and the Hypnobabies team for creating this program. I am SO thankful!”
