So I'm 32+2 & found out on Monday that baby is breech. I'm supposed to be having a VBAC this time round & am absolutely devastated to be in this predicament. Breech = no VBAC. We are only having 2 children so I really feel like this is not only my only chance of having a natural birth, but also my only chance to get over DSs birth almost 2 years ago.
I'm doing positioning techniques (breech tilt & inversions), had acupuncture yesterday & am doing moxibustion at home. My middie showed me how to find the head so of course I'm now obsessed with checking to see where it is. I feel like poor DS is being a bit neglected because I am so consumed by my thoughts. I'm terrified of having another csar - I had PND with DS & am certain I'll get it again if I end up with another csar. I just cannot stop crying about this. All this time I was worried about posterior presentation. Hell, I'd take that a thousand times over breech.
Not sure what the point of this is. I think I just need to get out how upset I am. I find it very difficult to talk to people IRL so I guess I just need an outlet.
Please, no advice about attempting a breech VBAC home birth. I'm not even considering it. And please, no statements about being grateful I have healthy children & that how they are born doesn't matter. It matters to me. More than I thought.

I don't know if this is an option in your situation but can your FS turn your baby? I think it's called ECV. I had it done and was then able to deliver vaginally.

I don't understand why breech automatically equals c-section. My mum gave birth to me breech and there were no complications, she definitely wasn't the first and won't be the last.
If you could get another opinion would you feel comfortable attempting a breech VBAC or is it because it's a VBAC that it wouldn't be allowed?

Oh that must be so disappointing for you.
Have you looked at the website spinningbabies.com?
It is really good for turning babies.

If I were you I would not be giving up now no matter what you are told.
Start walking, briskly, as much as you can and try and jolt bubs head down with gravity. Get more acupuncture too, it supposed to be great.
Also google Spinning Babies and just do it all. 32 weeks is not too late at all. Be positive!
