Abstract: A 36-year-old multiparous woman with fetus in the breech position applied ice to the fundus of the uterus and achieved successful cephalic version. No other reports of using ice to induce cephalic version are found with MEDLINE search; however, it has been used as a folk remedy. Further research to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ice is needed to determine whether it increases cephalic vaginal birth. Article Published Date : Jul 01, 2005
