  • No he wont deliver feet first. He should give your something to stop the contrations. If your water hasnt broke yet he/she can move up to the last second :) Good luck

  • No they don't deliver feet first, too much of a hazard. Hopefully your baby will flip around and come out head first when it comes time for delivery.

  • 1) are you sure it's contractions or could they be braxton hicks?

    2) baby can change postions as late as active labor, I wouldn't panic about it because

    3)depending on the exact presentation, it is safe to deliver a breech baby. Some postitions are better than others.

  • Ask your DOCTOR -DON'T TRY BY YOURSELF- about External Cephalic Version, or turning the baby. You can also call chiropractors and ask them! A chiro in my town does them.

  • try www.spinningbabies.com for tips and tricks on encouraging baby to turn. Also look for chiropractors that are skilled in the WEBSTER technique. You can also look into acupressure and acupuncture for getting a breech baby to turn. If all that fails, you can try the External Version with a skilled OB. Last but not least, you can seek out an OB or midwife that is skilled in vaginal breech delivery.

    Best thing you can do no matter what position baby is in, is to wait for labor to start. Babies can flip, even while in labor and it also helps to ensure that your baby will be ready to be born.

    Good Luck momma!
