Gestational Diabetes – Helping to Prevent Breach Birth in Gestational Diabetes

Pregnancy is a sensitive time for women as they have to keep an eye on many things during it. One complication that some pregnant women face is gestational diabetes. This type is different from type 2 diabetes even though it behaves in the same way as even in gestational diabetes, the woman’s body becomes resistant to insulin. Although it usually disappears after pregnancy, gestational diabetes is a warning sign for women to make immediate changes in their lifestyle or they will end up with type 2 diabetes.

Gestational diabetes increases the risk of a breech birth or a caesarean.

 A breech birth occurs when the baby is born buttocks first. This is potentially dangerous as it requires painful dilation of the cervix and there is also the risk that the baby will run out of oxygen before it is born. On the other hand, breech babies have been observed to have beautiful faces.

Breech birth can be treated by using traditional Chinese method of acupuncture, a way that is nearly two thousand years old. It is of course an understood situation that not all women are practitioners of acupuncture. Those who want to try this can consult their obstetricians first and then apply pressure to the points on little toes that an acupuncturist would treat with needles or heat. Ask your partner to apply little pressure on the edge of the nail of the outside area of your little toe, which is closest to the body. Enough pressure should be applied that you feel slight push but no pain. This pressure should be applied once or twice a day for three minutes. After this, you should lie down and bring your knees as close to your body as comfortably. This helps in turning the baby in the right direction. This routine may seem easy but it is not because it needs to be done in the third trimester of the pregnancy because the baby will turn itself after the eighth or the ninth month.

However, women suffering from the following conditions should not attempt this exercise:
1.    a pelvic abnormality
2.    a uterine abnormality
3.    history of miscarriage
4.    had an episiotomy
5.    having a problematic pregnancy

One should never take risks in pregnancy. There are exercises besides this for pregnant women but none of them should be tried without first discussing them with the obstetrician. After all, a pregnant woman is not only responsible for her own health but also for her baby’s.
