  • no, but...if you are breech you can google exercises to do to help turn your baby. also, there is still time to turn. i would start seeing a chiropractor now.
    adjusting the pelvis can open it up leaving more room for the baby to turn.
    good luck mama!

  • Good luck with the ideas here. I had a c-section because baby was breech. Everything worked out fine.

  • At 29 weeks the baby still has plenty of time to turn. You still have almost 3 months before the baby will be born. I wouldn't be worrying too much about it yet. Good luck.

  • There is sooo much time for baby to flip. And flip again. And again, a few dozen times!

    If you want to educate yourself on exercises to coax baby around it's easy & possible-- go to the spinningbabies website.
    If you get to 36 week with a persistent breech you might go for Moxibustion and/or Webster Technique. These are very successful and safe. (Unlike the ECV where the doctor turns baby manually.)

    IMO, it's best to hire a care provider that will attend your babies delivery and only intervene if there is an emergency. Breech is not an emergency~ just a variation of normal. Lots of providers are trained & experienced to help moms with vaginal breech birthing (these are usually Midwives.)

    So you do have several options!!
    Let me know if you want more info on this stuff~

    Best wishes!!

  • I believe that my c-section wasn't scheduled until I was 37 weeks. It was not long before I had my 2nd child that we scheduled it, because we wanted to give him time to turn. I even had an unsuccessful external version. You still have time, but get info on c-sections too, so you'll know what to expect.
