I remember the first time I channeled a breech fetus.
The expectant mother came to me to turn her breech baby, 35wk, around so that she can have a natural birth. Her first child was also breech and was born by a Cesarean birth / C-section. She really wanted this time to be different.
The female fetus felt very warm and cozy in the womb. It felt like the mother’s heart was a warm sun overhead. When I asked, several times, my guides the reason for the breech position, the answer I repeatedly received was that the fetus wants to be close to the heart.
I checked out the two options available to the mother and saw how they each felt. The first option was to somehow to turn the fetus so it faced head down. The way I visualized was to put her hands on the stomach and slowly move/massage the hands clockwise. However whenever I put my hands on my stomach to demonstrate this I felt a discomfort and pain in my stomach (I am her body when I channel and feel what she feels). I made a point of telling the mother that I cannot promise that using this technique will guarantee success. I also saw that the mother would still need to fight for the ability to have a natural birth at the hospital especially since her first birth was a Cesarean.
When I checked out the second option of having a Cesarean I felt relieved. I felt the decision of having a Cesarean took the constant worry of the breech baby/C-section off my shoulders. The mother has been so wrapped up in finding a way to turn the fetus that it has started affecting other areas of her and her family’s life. The other feeling that I received was the feeling that she did not fail by having a Cesarean. This was very important to convey to her.
I offered her these two scenarios and it is up to her to decide what to go for. I do not think it is right for me to tell people what to do but let them see, feel, and understand the possible consequences of their decision or possible decisions. I believe she will continue to try and turn the fetus and may she have success. Most importantly, may she have an easy birth and a healthy child.
