  • My little guy is breech too, If he wont end up flipping on his own I will just be getting the C-section done. I know someone that lost their baby one day after the reversal because when they flipped him the cord got pinched and killed the baby. I'm not willing to risk loosing my baby....I have hear WAYYYY to many horror stories!!

  • My oldest turned on his own at 38 weeks. It's never too late for a baby to turn.

  • I would wait until at least 37 weeks to do a version. If there is an emergency, you want your baby to be full term and as close to being ready to be born as possible to prevent or minimize NICU time.

    Please check out chiropractors that specialize in the Webster Technique and also look at for help turning baby.
    Also, you might want to speak with your care provider about a vaginal breech birth. Yes, there are risks but a c-section is very serious and it will effect your future fertility, pregnancy, and labors/deliveries. So, do some research momma and make an informed decision!

    Good Luck!

  • I think that the sooner you get your baby to turn the better. A manual reversal should be the last step though. You can do a lot of other things to try to get the baby turn on his or her own. Chiropractic work has seen a lot of success with this as well.

    Do a search on google and you tube for "turning breech baby" and it will give you lots of info. I recently had a doula client that found right before labor that her baby was butt down and I did a lot of online research for them and there was a lot of info out there. I also added some other tips to the other question you posted. ;) Good luck!

  • Turn him yourself with a bag of frozen peas. Go find for instructions.
