My midwife suggested Spinning Babies.com as a way to flip my breech baby. Gotta say, it worked! She is now head down. But then again, I'm still early enough that my chances were pretty good to get her to flip.

Ask your mw about the Spinning Babies web site to make sure it's safe for you to do.

Are you planning a c-section or were you going to try an external cephalic version?

Posting an update in case anyone searches on this later:

Been admitted to hospital at 38 weeks due to danger of cord prolapse.

C-section booked for due date (which i am very upset about as i have a 3 year old at home who is crying and begging me to come home and i dont see the point in delaying it as baby is measuring 7lbs and they have given me steriods for her lungs). Got to beg the doctor to move the date forward or im her for potentially 2 and a half weeks.

Put on a noisy ward with newborns crying and women being induced all already me so no chance of sleep. Just miss my little boy so much. The midwives are lovely but im just so down.

If anyone ends up in a similar situation you have my every sympathy.

This is UK by the way. (I know this hasnt got many replies but i just want to keep this updated because when i searched for this topic on the internet i could find much info)

I'm sorry that you are in this situation. It seems crazy that they aren't going to do a c section until your due date, most electives are booked in week 39!

I had an undiagnosed transverse baby, they didn't discover it until i went in for my planned section at 38 weeks. It's a scary thought having a cord prolapse, so you are in the right place but I totally get your frustration.

Most csections are booked for 39 weeks so fingers crossed you can bring this forward. Good luck x

I'm guessing you had your baby now. Just stumbled on this thread. My son was discovered transverse when I arrived at hospital at 9cms so they had to have him out in the hour by c section because of the risk of cord prolapse.
It's all very scary and definitely disappointing but I hope it all worked out for you and they brought your section forward (:
