Hi I posted a question about this a couple of weeks ago but have done some internet research and am concerned. I keep reading that babies in the breech position don't turn due to a neurological disorder that has been with the baby since development. Has anyone delivered a healthy breech baby? I found this out at a 3D ultrasound and told my doctor yesterday and she didn't say anything other than if she doesn't turn by 36 weeks then we think about C-Section. After I left I started thinking I should have asked more questions about what her position meant..
I don't understand what kind of neurological disorders can form and haven't been able to find any. All of my tests have come back in top shape except this...would this have been detected by any of them?

My fourth was breach till the last min. Then flipped. At 32 weeks I had an u/s because the doc suspected breach .. she was, at 36 she was transverse (side ways) by 39 she was head down. My dr told me when we found out she was breach that it would be fine to deliver w/o a section and all should be fine she had done it several times before. She never said anything about a neuro problem and my daughter doesn't have neuro problems. A friend delivered breach her kid is fine. It is probably just something that happens to some kids who are breach not all.

A couple things. Breech babies can be born vaginally. Breech is simply a *variation* of normal. Don't schedule a section, wait until you go into labor. She may turn in 3wks or she may turn when you go into labor. There are a lot of things you can do to turn a breech baby, check out these:
