    Default Anyone had a bub in frank breech position at any stage?

    My little miss is in frank breech ( basically folded in half), feet on her head, at 28 weeks.

    I was wondering if anyone has ANY stories, whether their bub turned or not, did it affect the way their legs were at birth etc? Anything at all!

    I'm not too concerned about birth yet as she has heaps of time to turn, but Im really curious to hear stories! And I'm hoping she turns by Sat so we can get some pics at or 4d scan! We couldn't get any last week thanks to her being in that position and refusing to move even a little

    I tried google, but as usual all I get are horror stories

    ETA I have checked out spinning babies and am giving a few techniques a shot before the weekend!

    I've had a complete breech with DD and a frank with DS. Both ended in c/s but that's bc I have a bicornuate uterus and med pros refuse to do ECV's on that uterine abnormality. The worst was having a head stuck under the rib cage and being constantly kicked in the bladder lol even now almost 5 years after the birth of my 2nd it gets really painful to hold going to the toilet. I believe I have some scarring on my bladder tbh.

    Hi there!

    I found out my lil guy was breech when I was 36wks. I tried everything on the Spinning Babies website to no avail . Also accupunture & moxa sticks did nothing for me.

    He was 1 foot up & 1 down but changed to frank a few days before.

    He was a successful vaginal birth at home, no problems... but I'll be honest & say I was more nervous than my other births about the pain.

    Hi ,

    My first DD was a frank breech, was sitting that way at our morph scan and I felt her turn totally around at about 36 but she promptly turned back. Her butt was fully engaged at 38wks (and she still does everything butt first ) and we tried manual turning to no avail so she was delivered by CS and while her head was still inside she managed to wee all over the doctor!

    Best of luck with moving your bub, they arn't as stubborn as mine was!

    Sam

    Only 3 times all between 32 and 40 weeks lol
    He flipped back and forth but was head down at birth. I did websters as well as home remedies and avoided sex - I swear every time I had it was when he flipped back to breech!

    No issues with legs etc here but he was up and down and not in that position the whole time.

    FFound out my DD was breech at 40 week scan.

    Emergency c-sec the following morn and she came out bum first and for a month she slept with legs straight up in the air in a mermaid position.
    Peads kept comming in and checking her joints while we were in hosp. MCHN checked she was bearing weight on her feet.
    Had a hip scan at i think about 4 -6weeks and she was absolutely fine

    Goodluck, im sure your baby will be fine

    Dd was frank breached (bum presented first ) I knew she was breached and kept waiting for her to head down. It was never picked up by OBs. Finally I asked a midwife at 36 weeks that confirmed than an OB confirmed with internal.
    I ended up with a cs at 37 weeks. They said she had hip displaysia she had an ultrasound at 6 and 12 weeks of age to monitor her development and 2 appointments with pead but that was it she didn't need anything else.
    Her head was right under my breast bone. It's why I think she has a birth mark on her forehead
