new research reveals anesthesia increases the odds of turning a breech baby before delivery.

many o-b's do not use anesthesia during the 'version' procedure to turn a baby's position ... which involves pushing down hard on a woman's abdomen while monitoring.

but a stanford university study found anesthesia raised the success rates from 38-percent to 60-percent.

and because it led to fewer c-sections, the use of anesthesia lowered the average cost of delivery by almost 300-dollars.
