Can you change your babies position from ROP (Right Occiput Posterior)?

Posted on
Right Occiput Posterior

In Right Occiput Posterior (ROP), baby is head down and the back is to the side- the mother’s right side. This position can be deceptively reassuring. ROP is the most common of the four posterior positions. Right Occiput Posterior – Baby’s back favors mother’s right side and the back of baby’s head is towards mother’s posterior. The baby would end up delivering facing the ceiling which gives you the challenge of delivering the baby with largest diameter of the head. Very often women take over 3 hours to drop the head down enough to deliver, especially the first time mothers. How can you change the baby position from ROP?

  • Acupuncture 
  • Use of a Peanut Ball
  • You can not change an infant position 
  • Lying on your side with your leg elevated on pillows between your legs
