ECV procedure of breech pregnancy

External cephalic version (ECV) is a procedure applied by midwives and obstetricians when a foetus is observed to be in breech position, ECV procedure turns the foetus from that position to the normal one where the head faces downward in vertex position. A foetus that is side-lying (in transverse position) can also be turned using this procedure. A foetus is supposed to have head in vertex position before onset of labour.

An expectant mum is advised not to push until the breech or side-lying foetus is corrected using ECV.
