Stubborn girl!


At my last mw appointment I was told my girl is breech. Okay, no biggie as I still have 9 weeks left. But I've noticed that my girl has 2 favorite positions: breech and transverse. I cannot get her to go head down, even for a little while. I do my yoga poses and tilt my hips and she will move out of breech into transverse. As soon as I stand upright, she is back to breech!!! So now I'm concerned she'll be stubborn and won't turn and I'll need a c-section.

Words of advice or any calming words of wisdom?

Try the website spinning babies if you haven't already.

Thanks, but I already have. I feel like I've done everything possible. Could having an anterior placenta be preventing the position change?

Have you been to a chiropractor? They have adjustments they can do to help a breech baby flip head down. My dr suggested I try getting adjusted because I'm 31 weeks and baby is firmly breech. Has been from the start.

ETA: If you do see a chiropractor, make sure they know how to adjust a pregnant lady as some adjustments need to be modified or done in a different way.

MEP having an anterior placenta did not effect me with my second but I'm not saying it couldn't. Your OB/midwife could have some things for you to try and a certified chiropractor might help as well, as PP mentioned. Fx for both of us, and continuing the exercises.

I move all of my babies by doing the breech tilt for 15 minutes with an ice pack at my top. If your baby likes to go transverse, I'd do an ice pack at the very top of the bump and make sure it reaches the top of both sides. All five of my babies have been either transverse or breech at 36 weeks, and I have a 100% success rate. My babies did NOT turn during the tilt. I went along with my day as normal. At bedtime, I would lay with pillows under my chest and pelvis and along both sides of my bump to lift up my belly, and I lay on my tummy with minumal weight put on it. A lot of pillows, but it's so comfy for me. Twice, I woke up in the middle of the night feeling baby moving, as it was extremely uncomfortable, but they were head down! The other three times, I would feel movement when I was awake in the middle of the night, but the bigger sign was that I woke up with my back hurting like heck!!! So be prepared to get a nice back massage. It really helps.

Next, babies tend to flip into a posterior/back-to-back position. If you're worried about this, keep up with spinningbabies. I hope my method works for you! Please make sure you have a spotter!!!

Thanks xdxxtx. I'll try those techniques tonight before bed. My mw said something similar today with the cool pack at the top of the bump and something warm at the bottom of the bump.

Some babies are more stubborn, and some bodies don't give the babies as much room, but it is totally worth trying!!!! Update if it works, please!!! The most I've had to do was follow my process 2 days in a row.
