Why it might work:
Part of the idea is to release the utero-sacral ligament and give baby the extra room. If you twist a lot for work or do a lot of asymmetric movement (holding a child on one hip, for example), you are more likely to have a twist in your uterus. Also, gravity makes the baby fall out of your pelvic and when the baby’s head hits the top of your uterus, it will ideally do a somersault. The inversions also help a baby tuck his chin so he can flip.
Either way, you want to do what you can to keep a butt-down baby from engaging (wedging itself in your pelvis, ready for birth). As my sweet OB explained it, “It’s like a toilet. The baby is floating in the water but as you get closer to flushing him out the water goes down and he gets stuck in the narrow part down there.” OK, obviously a man, and admittedly not a direct quote. The point is, keep the kid from getting low in the bowl. And, the earlier you start trying to turn, the better chance you have. Start between 32-35 weeks. Part of the goal is to keep a butt-down baby from getting his butt wedged into your pelvic, thus becoming harder to turn.
