Realisty TV star Kim Kardashian is turning to hypnotherapy to help turn her breech baby report the hollywood gossip columns.
Currently pregnant with her second child, Kim experienced anxiety and worry last time so is now turning to hypnosis to help her through what felt traumatic last time, reports Marie Clare magazine and website.
Most babies turn of their own accord, as they grow and develop in the womb.
Sometimes however this doesn’t happen at a time that you would wish, and as the baby grows it becomes harder for them to turn into a head downwards position from which they would have an easier delivery.
When this happens it can often create more worry and stress for you and that worry and stress really won’t help either you or your baby.
Blog post from Kim
"I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech pregnancies]—so, lucky me!" Kim wrote on her blog "It's been hard because I usually go to my mom or Kourtney for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both, with nine total pregnancies! have never experienced one of these crazy things."
You are probably already aware of how being calm, relaxed and confident about your birthing will be the best way forward for both you and your baby, but it can sometimes be difficult to get yourself into that place when you have extra worries.
Kim is trying many different ways to help her ease the birth of her second child, trying many methods to get the baby to turn. "I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes," she said. "I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!"
Most babies turn of their own accord and of course helping to ease that stress is always a good thing.
