Q:

i am now last month in my pregnancy doctor suggested me to do colour droppler sonography what does it actually means ?? my baby position is head up and legs down so how to change its position for normal???

The color Doppler scan is done to see how the blood flow is within the uterus thru the umbilical cord. It helps the doctor ascertain if the baby is getting enough Nutrition and oxygen in utero. Your baby is in a breech presentation and this generally means a surgical birth for first time moms. You can try some exercise postures like the pelvic tilt, dog pose etc to try and turn the baby. Relax, talk to the baby, place ice bags on your abdomen and you could also play some music near the pelvic region to encourage the baby to move in that direction.

if any problem shows in my sonography so will the doctor waits for the normal delievery or c section delivery be done as soon as possible ????colour droppler sonography is done internally or normally outside the belly section??

Dr. Payal M

color Doppler is a type of sonography. it's done externally similar to your routine scan. doc will check blood flow in the cord, uterine arteries and foetus. it's done to see if blood flow through placenta and to baby is optimal. a decision for delivery can only be taken once you do the scan. but if you don't have any medical problems then it most likely will be ok. if baby remains breech y might plan a cesarean.

i done my colour droppler morning mei i didnt belive 4 dayz before mera baby breach position mei tha today in sonogrphy it is head down position mei hai but tha problem is ambical cord uske neck ke paas he hai but loose hai toh is it to worry about my baby health

Dr. Payal M

good the baby turned.
single cord loop near or around neck is not a big issue to worry about especially when we know it's loose.
my baby had two loops around neck.

to set the baby in his right position better to consult homeopath. my father is homeopath n there r medicines for such complications.
