    They will do a scan before they try and turn the baby anyway, so you shouldn't need to ask for one? They will check for things like cord around the neck, the amount of water around baby etc.

    I had an ECV with DD at 38 weeks - it wasn't painful just a bit uncomfortable. It was successful and I went on to have a natural birth. Good luck. For me the decision was easy - I really didn't want to have a c section so anything to try and help baby move I would've (and did) do. I had my bag packed in the car with me though just incase I had to have an emergency c section.

    Hi everyone, thanks for sharing and your advice.

    Just an update - I had the ECV today and our little girl didn't budge. It wasn't painful, but definitely uncomfortable. My OB is going to call me next week to book in a c-section.

    Is that something your comfortable with? From what I have read the latest research shows that's it's safer to vb a breech than it is to do a Cs, don't get me wrong it's your choice, just putting it out there.

    I couldn't read through and not reply.
    My bub was breached the entire time. I always could feel her head right up the top under my breast bone. When I was in the fetal maternal monitoring unit for another issue at 37+1w I asked the midwife was she breached and that's when they picked it up despite being through the high risk ob unit. A week later I was booked in for a csection. I know my bub wouldn't of turned she was extremely stubborn and I fell she just like sitting there. Even during the csection they needed to tug her out quite a bit.
    Dd needed a ultrasound at 6 and 8 weeks to check her hips she didn't need a brace.
    She was my first bub and I was terrified of a cs possibility and was hugely empowered and ready for labour. The only reason why I went through with the cs is I needed to deliver her ASAP and I was assured i could vbac next time. Which I'll be looking forward to doing in 30 weeks
    Good luck with your birth

    Sometimes they're breech for a reason, DS had a short cord and an abnormally large head it turns out. I'm extremely glad we went with the Obs advice and had the CS as a VB would most likely have been fatal.

    I've had two amazing c-sections, I really recommend reading http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...be-Empowering! <-- this thread, it's all about wonderful c-section experiences, they're not as awful as people make them out to be, especially scheduled ones.

    I think it depends on the type of breech position the baby is in? Sometimes it's risky because of the likelihood of cord prolapse in a footling breech etc. don't get me wrong, I don't know much about footling breeches etc, but I think hospitals etc are more wary of footling breech positions as opposed to frank.

    For sure there would be variations in risks depending on bubs exact positioning, I had a quick look through the ranzcog website and from the brief read I got the chance to do their stance was its up to the woman with a large focus on whether the woman wanted to have many children.

    Sorry I can't post more now

    BlissedOut, thanks for directing me to that thread. It was great to read so many positive stories and experiences.

    At the end of the day I am comfortable with either a CS or VB as long as my little girl is healthy and I can hold her in my arms

    Thanks again for all the info ladies and sharing your thoughts and experiences x
