External Cephalic Version (ECV)

“ECV is an attempt to turn the fetus so that he or she is head down. ECV can improve your chance of having a vaginal birth. If the fetus is breech and your pregnancy is greater than 36 weeks your health care professional may suggest ECV.” -ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists)

If your baby is breech as you approach your due date, External Cephalic Version is an option you may discuss with the FMCC Provider team. ECV can be a very effective tool used in avoiding cesarean birth.
