Anyone Successfully "Flipped" Their Baby fm Back to Back??


From (head down) facing forward to properly facing back?? Was just informed today by MW that due to my "lounging habits" on the couch (with my feet up in front of me leaning back like a lazy-boy), baby decided to flip over to face the world need to get her flipped back very soon!! If you did this, how did u do it and how long did it take? I have been told to do the cat-cow pose and now sit on the couch with my legs bent to the side.

I think this is my my pelvis and tail bone hurt so bad right now, gotta fix this b4 baby gets to far down...

Sorry, I don't have personal experience! I'm not sure what my LO is doing right now, lol. I do tend to sit cross-legged a lot, not sure if that's good or bad.

Have you heard of spinningbabies? I've heard it mentioned a few times on this site and checked it out. There's a lot of info that seems really helpful!!

One of our ladies in my antenatal class was back to back and our leader said to bend over slightly with elbows leaning on work surface etc when you can! the extra space in tum is supposed to encourage bubs to turn. hers did :-) ! might be coincidence but worth trying!!xxxx

I've got the same problem.

Second the spinning babies website.

Legs x'd with knees out good, legs crossed at knees not good.

Swimming is good but not breast stroke legs.

I'm also sleeping semi prone (nearly on my front) or on my front with my pregnancy pillow making a doughnut hole for the bump.

Cat cow as you mentioned, walking, pelvic tilts, no slumping, walking around on all fours!

Most babies move during labour - don't lie down! Lying on your back for a back to back labour will make it 10xs worse, also avoid any epidural if you can, makes it harder for baby to turn. I'm planning a water birth.

If you think you're having a back labour please rent a tens machine. I just suffered a 42 hr back labour and only half way through did our lovely midwife suggest it.

Apparently tens works best if you put it on early and then progressively increase intensity. When it no longer helps get into water.

I have the same problem. Similar to bean I've made a nest of pillows on bed to sleep on with hole for bump, and also laying on left side at mo. I know my girlbean is in LOP position so just left of my spine so trying to ease her round. Everytime she starts kicking I get on hands and knees and do back arches. Apparently crawling round on your hands and knees also helps. When sitting up only sit on yoga or birthing ball - don't bounce though!! You'll encourage baby to drop and engage in wrong position.
Good luck getting baby to turn! X
