Watch This Doctor Reposition a Breech Baby in 2 Minutes

In two minutes, a doctor at the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton, England, performed an external cephalic version (EVC), turning a breech fetus so that it would face head-down.

At first he warns the mother, who is 36 weeks pregnant, that it’s going to be uncomfortable, but not unbearably painful: “If you cannot tolerate it, just say so.” Then he gets to work, rotating the unborn baby. As he completes the procedure, the mom turns red and begins to chuckle. “It felt funny,” she says about half through.

Perhaps the craziest part is that you can see the form of the baby moving in her stomach. “What a man, what a genius,” the person holding the camera says at the end. “You could see her turning. That was amazing.”
