    Default 31 weeks in frank breech position with low amniotic fluid

    Hello... I'm feeling a little low at the moment and can't seem to cheer myself up. My baby has been in the frank breech postion (legs straight up in front of the body, head to the top) for the entire pregnany and I have had low amnitoic fluid since around week 20. My level is around 8cm (normal is approx. 8-25cm).

    My OB says that my baby will not have enough fluid to turn herself around and he has said I will alomst certainly need to have a c-section. I'm so scared.

    The other thing he's keeping an eye on is the growth rate because apparently without enough fluid the baby is restricted in its growth and this means she has gone from 45th percentile down to 30th percentile in two weeks. If this continues to decrease she will need to come out early??

    Am I warranted in my stressing? I feel like an emotional wreck at the moment, I was just hoping someone has been in a similar situation.

    Try finding yourself a chiropractor who will be able to turn bub around by manipulating your pelvis (gently!) which then encourages bub to turn. The sooner, the better I think they use the Webster technique?
    Can only try
