Thanks for query,
This condition is called breech presentation and this is just reverse of normal presentation.
They may try for changing the presentation but I think it is difficult to do.
So in this case one has to go for Caeserian section operation.
Ok and bye.

The doctor must have told you that your wife might be operated upon if the position of the baby remains the same even in her 9th month of pregnancy. As per now, there are chances that the baby might move inside and head could be down.

Thanks for writing to us.
Baby inside mother's womb keeps on moving and changing its position. Normally the lie of baby becomes stable in the ninth month. If this is the first pregnancy of your wife then a breech presentation- an upside down position, makes it difficult for the mother to deliver normally. The chances of injury or asphyxia to baby are more. So, in such cases operative delivery is preferred.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
