    Default Bub breech at 35 wks?

    Hi all,

    Just had my 35 wk check only to find bub has turned breech. Have an appt with doc next Thursday and possibly they will perform an ECV if that doesn't work looks like I'll need a c-section.

    Any advice/experience?

    Thanks

    I was told to kneel on all fours over a fit ball and just let your belly drop. Apparently it gives bubba more room to move. You gotta do it whenever you have a spare few minutes though. I did it while watching tv

    I was told the same.. Get on all fours as much as possible. There was a study done on it and the more people were on all fours the less breech babies.. Somewhere in Europe where they are always scrubbing floors as my ob told me..

    Lulu21, You still have plenty of time to get the ball rolling with a lot of the suggestions the other posters have given. Definitely check out the 'spinning Babies' website, it is awesome in terms of getting to know opitmal fetal positioning and physical things you can do to help bub encourage to turn.

    I would get on all fours as much as possible, not recline on your lounge, but sit upright, or better still, sit on a chair backwards, try not to lie around as much as you can and definitely give Moxibustion a go as well as trying to find a Chiro who is trained in the Webster technique.

    Like you, I had a breech bub around 35 weeks and thankfully now at 39 weeks bub is head down ready to go. All the best!

    Thanks for the replies ladies.
    Just to update, went for my check up Thursday and the little darling has turned head down again! They are facing posterior and not engaged but at least heading in the right direction!
