turning baby in the womb


hello ladies ,

im currently 33 weeks tomorrow and had a scan which is showing my baby is still breech. the consultant said if it is still breech at 36 weeks they will dicuss with me the options i.e a c section or trying to turn the baby.

has ne 1 experienced having the baby turn? did it work did it hurt and are their any risks. i hear some times the baby turns back around to.

I am in the same position as you, except I do not want them to manually turn my baby. I read the risks and not willing to consider this as an option anymore! I am hoping he turns himself but if he doesn;t I will opt for a c-sectionx

Connor was breech but i knew that even if he wasnt i was having a csection anyway. If you have an ecv and it turns baby there is still a chance that baby could turn back around so i wouldnt have chosen to have one if i could

At one of my antenatal classes, we were told that being on all fours, maybe leaning over a birth ball or something, can really help baby turn! She advised us all to start doing it now to avoid baby getting into the breech position in the first place...so maybe you could give that a try!!

Hope ur little one moves by themselves xxx

Thankyou for your replies fingers crossed he turns in time.I didn't like the sound of him being turned by the re doesn't sound right and I can imagine it is very painful

Hi, I had an ECV on Tuesday, and it really wasn't that bad. There was a lot of pressure applied, and I am a little sore now, feel a bit like a bruise. It was uncomfortable, and a tiny bit painfull at times, but only briefly. The injection they gave me to relax my uterus hurt more than the procedure. They scan you extensively to check there is no cord in the way, or how much fluid you have etc. They also scanned me when they had the baby half way round. I was put on a monitor to listen to babies heart beat first, and afterwards for about half an hour.
The staff were lovely, and very reassuring. I asked the doctor to stop during his second attempt, not because of the physical feelings, but because mentally I was over it! The doctor stopped straight away, scanned and appologised to me for the two failed attempts.
If I had let him carry on I really believe the baby would not have turned....

Having the ECV done was not a decision i took lightly, I really wanted to avoid a section, although it was still hard to decide what to do. I think it is important to have staff who are sympathetic and respectful to you during the procedure.

I'm having my baby by section on 16th June, at the same hospital, I hope I see some of the same staff.....

Good luck whatever happens and I hope the baby turns for you
