Doctor Pushed Down On Her Breech Baby, But When You See Mom’s Belly Next? I Can’t Believe It!

When the baby in her womb had entered a breech position, Liam Muckleston rushed his wife to the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton, United Kingdom. She was 36 weeks and three days pregnant. If not taken care of, the breech baby could have ended up being fatal during labor. The doctor performed External Cephalic Version (ECV) on the mother. It is a process where one uses his bare hands to flip the baby externally by massaging the mother’s belly.

The doctor does a sonogram so that he can see the exact position of the baby. Then he examines the mother, feeling exactly where the baby is. Then the magic happens. The doctor begins to rotate the baby into the correct position by pushing on the mother’s abdomen and rotating his hands.
