Great :(


Had midwife appointment today, was all excited as I was due to have a sweep after the complications of my last birth.

Well, he's moved from his ideal head down position to being in an oblique position, which means no sweep and now our main focus is to get him turned ASAP so we can get him out. If he's not moved by next Thursday ill be sent back to my consultant where I think they'll probably suggest a section

I'm so upset, this isn't how I'd hoped this pregnancy would go, especially as DD's birth went a bit tits up

So instead of this weekend being mission get baby out, it's going to be mission get him turned without starting labour beforehand.

Two things that worked for me. My midwife gave me a special stick that looks like a cigar and had my OH do what is called Moxibustion. Google it. I'm surprised your midwife never said anything. I would call your midwife today and ask her about it and where you can get this stick.

Second thing...chiropractors preform this thing called the Webster technique. It helps baby turn. It doesn't hurt. It's very simple and just helps your uterine muscles relax to give more space for baby.

Both of these things turned my baby by the next day at 36 weeks.

Here is a video for both...

Webster Technique: (my chiropractor goes a little more in depth then this guy but you get the idea)

My SIL had this, her gran told her to scrub lots of floors and do the wag like a dog (on all 4s, wagging your bump backwards and forwards).

Bub turned, wasn't sure whether it was the above or just he turned, but its worth a go..

Don't think they'd do that on the NHS
