Breech at 35 weeks


Well wouldn't you know it I found out today little one is full breech. Doctors said they could try a cephalic version which has a 50/50 shot of working. Any ladies out there willing to share your experiences? I am going to do the pelvic tilts and moxibustion, but I am so short waisted not sure the little one is going to budge. Is a ecv worth trying? I am honestly not opposed to a c-section, because it has been a long road to get here and I just want a healthy baby.

Have you taken a look at spinning babies website? There is lots of exercises to try. 35 weeks still allows time for baby to move

I found out my baby was breech around then and had the ECV. It didn't hurt, but it also didn't work. Just a waste of time, but it was my first so that didn't matter. I tried all the exercises and moxibustion as well. Ended up with a c-section, although I had the option to try vaginally. My OB said there is some evidence in properly controlled studies that acupuncture can help. I didn't try that. If it doesn't cost you anything and you have time to sit in a hospital for four hours or so (they monitored me for a long time after), you might as well try it. I really found the c-section, especially the recovery, to be awful and much preferred the vaginal birth I had with my second. Good luck

Thank you both for your input! I am trying to do what I can and we will see if there is any change next week when I see my regular doctor.

I've had two babies who were breech at 35-37 weeks and two who were transverse at that stage... That's all four of my babies. lol. I got my breech babies to turn very quickly by doing breech tilt and holding an ice pack at the top of my bump during the process. Do you have a doppler? If so, listen to where the baby's heart beat is now. Then, do the breech tilt and follow it up by listening again with the doppler to see if the baby's position changed. If not, you can go by belly mapping. If you haven't already been to the SpinningBabies Flip A Breech page, start immediately with their exercises. I hope you noticed I included links to everything I mentioned here. I turned all of my babies using SpinningBabies' techniques and had vaginal deliveries with all of them. Good luck! I know it isn't 100%, but it has been for me.
