  • If you have already been getting a lot of contractions then they might....but I wouldnt count on it. They might give you something to hold off on the labor and schedule you for one insted. Now if you start to have regular contractions then they will do it today....Good luck! and CONGRATS!!

  • Switch care providers.
    Use a doctor or a midwife that saves big risks (surgical birth) for true emergencies.

    In the meantime you can try pulsatilla, moxibustion, Webster, and a lot of exercises that are very helpful. Several options!
    Knowing that babies turn with the contractions of Early Labor help to remind you to allow baby & body to do Their Thing.

    I encourage you to avoid unnecessary risks.

    At 20 weeks, about one in four pregnancies are breech presentation. By full term, the incidence is about 4%.
