    spinning babies works!! I did the moves for 3 days and my transverse bubba went head down (vs bum down) at 31wks.

    good luck
    I've got a private middie & she's looking at 36 weeks before trying anything. I'm just super paranoid so have started trying to turn baby before she thinks I need to. My options are fairly limited medically having had the csar. But I'm willing to give anything else a crack.

    Thanks for all the support, well wishes & suggestions so far.

    Moxy I was very sad to read this post, as I know how upset you must be...

    Sounds like you are trying everything possible so far. Try to stay calm and practice your breathing as well I have found it really helps when I'm stressed.

    A certain middle also told me about a successful breech birth at a hospital. I don't know if it was a VBAC though. If it was an option would you consider that?

    Massive hugs to you and the family xxxx

    I have a friend who is 38 weeks, in the last two weeks her baby has gone from breech to head down to breech to head down. It's definitely not too late for your baby to turn.

    Good luck!

    You are only at early days, there is heaps of time for bub to turn.

    My 2nd bub was breech at 39.5 weeks and still turned head down.

    Is your midwife experienced in rebozo techniques to encourage baby to turn? Rebozo worked awesomely on me.

    This was me at 34 weeks. I joked to my Ob that she was breech at 30 weeks so could she check if bub had turned head down and she hadn't.

    I had acupuncture, burnt moxa and did the inversion(a few times) from spinning babies an she had turned by 36 weeks.

    My issue now is getting her to engage and head on out by next Tuesday.

    I think with having the restrictions that come with a hospital VBAC it hard not to stress when something is not going how the hospital require it to as it takes away your birth options.

    Good luck I hope you(and I) get a VBAC.

    Exactly. I feel like I'm already bound by so many stupid things because I'm VBACing and I really don't need (nor
    am I coping with) having an issue that's not even VBAC related.

    Good luck with your VBAC. I really hope it goes well for you.

    Moxy, I inadvertently stumbled over your thread and I hope you don't mind me replying.

    I was in your June first-time mums group (BH then FB) and having had an unwanted c-section myself (which left me devastated and with severe PND) and being determined to VBAC with #2 (when the time comes), I can imagine how upset/stressed/frustrated/devastated you must be feeling. You just want to have a natural birth (a seemingly simple desire/request), and yet because of your c-section with DS, it must already feel like an uphill battle (OB's scaremongering, hospital policies, the fear of a repeat c-section, plus the stress of knowing it's all or nothing this time (spontaneous labour and successful VBAC or another caesarean)). Now having bub presenting breech must be devastating and I daresay, demoralising. On the positive side, you've found out early and now have just over 7 weeks to try your hardest to encourage bub to flip. You already have a strong plan of attack, a determined mindset and by the sounds of it, a supportive midwife. I really hope bub decides his/her current position is uncomfortable and wiggles his/her beautiful little butt upwards and stays that way!

    As for people telling you it doesn't matter how your baby is born, pfft! Of course it bloody well does! I really hope you have a beautiful VBAC and that the birth is everything you've hoped for and provides some healing.

    DD turned breech at about 32 weeks (I think, memory is getting hazy!). I did yoga poses, a little bit of spinning babies and saw my Chiro who is qualified in the Webster technique and specialises in pregnancy and children. Something worked because she was head down and stayed that way from about 36/37 weeks.

    There's still plenty of time, I know that's easy for us to say!

    Get your chiro to do the Webster Technique......
    Try acupuncture.
    Swimming. Do you have an indoor pool near you anywhere? (if the weathers warm enough where ever you are it doesn't need to be indoors of course). Lying on your tummy in water has been known to help babies turn.
    Moxibustion sticks
    and lastly, try not to stress too much ( I know- difficult). Lots of babies (especially subsequent) do belly flips. My 4th flipped breech at 36 weeks and stayed there until 40 + 2 (or around there) so there is still plenty of time for your baby to turn over.
