Similarly one may ask, how does a baby lay in the womb?
Other ways a baby can lie in the womb posterior position (occipito-posterior) - facing the opposite way with their backs to your back, and their face facing upwards. breech position - where their bottom leads first, and their head is at the top. transverse position - across your womb from side to side.
Likewise, which side of the womb does a baby boy lie? As the myth goes, if you sleep on your left side it's a boy. Right side equals girl.
Also to know, what is the best position of a baby in the womb?
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, most babies move into an anterior position, which is the best position for vaginal birth. If a baby is still in a transverse lie or breech position just before labor, a doctor or midwife will make medical interventions to ensure the safety of the woman and baby during childbirth.
Does baby change position in womb?
Babies change position in pregnancy and during the birth process. If a woman's womb is relatively balanced, then getting into gravity-friendly positions during pregnancy can help a breech baby to flip head down or a posterior baby to scoot over to the mother's left side and face her right hip.
