Hi, I am in need of some advice, please!
I'm 36 weeks pregnant with my first baby whom happens to be in the frank breech position.
I am so overwhelmed with decisions regarding whether to try for an ECV (turning of baby) or to play it safe with a cesarean (as safe as i can assume they are). There are risks for each, and there is a 20% chance she could turn on her own between now and her due date.
My instinct is to go ahead with a cesarean (unless she naturally turns prior), if she wanted to come naturally she would have turned. But both the doctor I saw today and the midwife were strongly opinionated for an ECV. The doctor said it would save him 10 minutes extra of paper work! HA!
Two previous doctors I have spoken with suggested a cesarean as the success rate of an ECV was not worth the risk of it resulting in an emergency C-section anyway.
Please, anyone with any past experiences in this similar decision could really really ease my mind, as doctors and midwives I have seen, just seem to be too strongly opinionated one way or another. Pregnancy is emotional enough without having a feeling of guilt or the wrong decision being waved over you.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
