35 weeks and BREECH!!! Help :)


I'm a mother of 5 and am pregnant with #6. I had a homebirth VBAC with my 5th child and planned another homebirth this time. I will be absolutely crushed if I have to go into the hospital.

I have been seeing the chiropractor and acupuncturist 2x a week, or more, and have been doing all of the maneuvers on spinning babies. Along with those things I have regularly played music at my pelvic bone and held frozen peas at the top of my uterus to encourage a turn.

I need success stories because I am incredibly down at the moment....has anyone had a baby turn after 35 weeks?!?!
We are now considering a home breech birth, but I'd prefer the baby to turn head down!!!

I'm in the same boat so I'm going to stalk this thread if that's ok.

I was still breech at 35 weeks. Went on a weekend Christmas shopping spree at 36 weeks and he turned on the Sunday! I swear it was all that walking. It took me a week to get over the tiredness because of how much i done but it got him moving so it was worth it. I was told not to worry about them being breech at 35 weeks as you still have a potential 7 weeks left which is a long time, but I'm a FTM so may be wrong.

mine was breech until my 36+4 appointment, I didn't even feel him/her turn! I tried loads of exercises, bounced on the ball loads and did clockwise circles with my hips and pelvic tilts, moxibustion and took a homeopathic remedy called pulsatilla

I really hope yours turns, I'm also having a home birth and wouldn't have been able to have one if he/she stayed breech so I was really keen to get them to move!

I'm only 30 weeks tomorrow and baby is breech and I'm already freaking out, I know I have lots and lots of time but DD1 was ALWAYS head down at every appointment this one is just being different. Will you be allowed a home birth if baby stays breech? I won't even be allowed a V birth unless baby turns as our local hospitals simply don't deliver breech babys its C section all the way and I desperately don't want one! If you find a way to get baby turned please share and good luck!

Unfortunately, there are very few doctors in my area that will attempt a hospital breech birth. My midwife is licensed for frank breech so if baby is a frank breech then we will continue with our homebirth. Crossing or fingers baby turns so that's not an issue!!! I start moxibustion tomorrow and have been using pulsatilla for a week :-)

Can they try to turn him? My Doctor was going to attempt that during my second pregnancy but I only made it to 35 weeks.

An ECV in my area is elective an not covered by insurance which would be around $4,500. Though, even that being an enormous expense we consulted with a hospital only to learn that the 3 doctors in our area that would turn a "3rd party patient" signed to a midwife require you to sign a document that says if the ECV is unsuccessful they will be allowed to take you in for an immediate c-section!! And that's even if the baby remained unharmed during the external version!!! That's just crazy and I am not signing any such form!

Wow that's weird! Do they get to charge you for the c-section to?

My baby is breech too. My Dr said we should start to get concerned at 37 weeks. Then by 38 weeks, if he's still breech we will talk about scheduling a c-section.
