Maneuvers Your Obstetrician May Try, And A Few She Probably Will NOT (Knot?)

For women who find themselves carrying a baby that is not coming squarely head down in the pelvis, there are various maneuvers
Reaching far up into the uterus to pull a baby's leg down is not often a maneuver tried
Nor Will Your Obstetrician Try Tying a Knotted String On the Leg as did in the 19th Century
Rotation Can Help Ease the Baby Out 

   
that can be done to actually deliver the baby. Some of these maneuvers are only part of obstetrical lore, others are actually still used by the few obstetricians and midwives who deliver breeches vaginally.Like using her finger gently in the mouth to help the head out as in the last picture.
