Doctors also believe that the antenatal bandage is also needed in order to fix the future child in the right position at the moment when he dropped into the mother's pelvis at the prenatal moment. This is necessary so that it does not turn over and stay in the position with the head down. Even if the child is already lying down, the bandage should be worn, since in this case the child will still take the correct head position, which will save the doctors from having to do a cesarean section.
