    Default Did you successfully turn your breech baby naturally?

    And if so, how did you do it??!!

    I'm only 30 weeks and discovered about 3 weeks ago that baby is breech. No one is worried, Doc and Midwives says there's plenty of time and it's quite common at this stage in pregnancy but as this is my third and I haven't come across this problem I just want to be prepared!

    I've read a bit about elevating your butt and keeping the shoulders lower so have been sitting in this position 2-3 times a day (as long as my two little toddlers let me sit still!!).

    Was just wondering if anyone else has come across this hurdle?

    A friend of mine managed to turn her breech bubba using the breech tilt and a few other techniques - check out the 'Flip a breech' section on the Spinning Babies website:

    Also, find a good chiro who performs the Webster Technique, as it can be beneficial for optimal foetal positioning, especially breech position. I can recommend one in Brisbane - not sure where you are though.

    A friend of mine had moxibustion at about 35 weeks. Hers turned soon after.

    I'm 32+4 and going to see a chiro in Perth tomorrow to talk about the websters technique as I found out a couple of weeks ago that bub is breech currently. Will let you know how I go!

    Acupuncture and moxibusttion worked for me. Bub was breech from 30-34 weeks had accu at 34 weeks and burnt moxa sticks at home for 10 days and she had flipped. I am getting Chiro at 38 weeks just to make sure everything is aligned properly and continuing accu and moxa to encourage her to stay head down.

    The homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla​ is well known for turning babies. Good luck!
