Hypnotherapy may help pregnant women turn their breech baby around to
the normal head-first, or vertex, position. A researcher at the University
of Vermont, Burlington, used hypnosis with one hundred pregnant women
whose fetuses were in the breech (feet-first) position between the
thirty-seventh and fortieth week of gestation.
The intervention group received hypnosis with suggestions for general
relaxation and release of fear and anxiety. While under hypnosis, the
women were also asked why their baby was in the breech position.
The study, which appeared in the Archives of Family Medicine, reported
that 81 percent of the fetuses in the hypnosis group moved to the vertex
position, compared with 48 percent of the control group. Not surprisingly,
hypnosis was most effective for the women motivated to use the technique."
