External cephalic version as shown in the picture above is a process by which a breech baby can sometimes be turned from buttocks or foot first to head first. It is usually performed after about 36 weeks.
It is often reserved for late pregnancy because breech presentation greatly decreases with every week.
It can be contrasted with “interal cephalic version”, which involves the hand inserted through the cervix
Contraindications include antepartum hemorrhage,pre-eclampsia, ruptured membranes,uterine scarring, and multiple pregnancies or fetal abnormality.
