  • Music by your vagina? That is funny! Maybe you can lure it out with a piece of cheese. I'm just kidding. My daughter was breech. I had a scheduled c-section and it was really fine. I got to spend 4 days in the hospital just me and my baby and we really bonded and learned to breastfeed like champs. It's not so bad. Good luck to you!

  • chiropractors can contribute to turning babies by adjusting the mom, allowing the pelvis to be in its natural position, allowing the baby more room to turn.

  • Have the doctors tried to turn the baby. It can be very painful and sometimes it is successful but not always..Google natural ways to turn a breach baby and see what comes up.

  • My first baby was breech as well. His cord was wrapped around his neck, so turning was not an option. Have the doctor try to turn the baby. If my son's cord was not wrapped around his neck they would have done this!

  • Chiropractor! Google "Webster Method Chiropractor" to find one. This technique is just like basic adjustment. Very simple, painless and has a higher success rate than getting the baby turned by a doc, which is risky and painful!

  • have you gone to spinning babies website ? or have you tried to find any providers who are experienced at attending breech birth? overall, i think there is still time for baby to turn, and some babies even turn after labor begins!!! good luck. =)
