If baby is breech, when would they schedule a c-section..


I'm just wondering, as Mia is still very much breech !!

With my last pregnancy, my waters broke on the 26th Dec... I was due on the 2nd Jan... so do they go with when your earliest labour is, and then go a bit before.

I really don't want to have her in August

Also, my eldest, Lewis, starts year 2 on the 3rd Sept, and Ethan starts Nursery on the 8th.. and I really need to take them for their first days !!!

Any ideas.... I wouldn't mind if they did it on the 10th onwards... but will they leave it that late with a breech..???

I don't really know but i wouldn't imagine they will let you go to full term.

Get that bum in the air and turn this girl around.

They usually schedule a c section for breech reason at 39 weeks

Hope that helps

Every place is different. But a couple of factors: one- though rare, some mw's will deliver a breech baby, in which case they don't schedule a c-sec. Also, you have some choice. Babies have been known to flip into proper position when labor starts, so you can request not to schedule a c-sec and just go in at the first signs of contractions and if she doesn't flip, they can do a c-sec at that time. Also, some docs do cephalic aversions (where they manually flip baby) and this is also usually done once labor starts and baby hasn't flipped on her own. So they should discuss with you what your choice is in terms of scheduling it if they prefer to do that- but don't feel like you HAVE to schedule it before the due date if you are not comfortable- they can always schedule it later and if you go into labor before reaching the date they can go ahead and do it at that time.

I have my 34 week appointment on Monday, and I know that's when they really start to monitor the babes position from.

I know they can manually turn the baby... I daren't google it, but surely this must cause the baby some distress, to be forced to move in such a small place !! What if they poo in the womb or get tangled up in the cord... probably sounds silly, but I don't know

Hi Anne-Marie,

I was worried that my LO was breech for a few weeks as nobody could tell me the position she was in at 34 and 36wk appointments! My GP sent me to the JR to the ECV (External Cephalic Version) clinic on a Tuesday. Apparently at this they do a scan to check for breech and then use the ultrasound to guide them as they try to turn the baby. Luckily my baby was head down, so I didn't have to have an ECV. I met a lady in the waiting room though that, was 37.5 weeks and was there for a second ECV (turning) attempt. If that didn't work I think she was booked in for a C-section a week or so later!

I read a lot about ECV before going and there is a small chance of distress to the fetus, but I think both Breech birth and C-sections are more dangerous from what I can tell. I was also told that Dr Edward Impey and his Midwife have an excellent reputation and have a success rate of 70-80% in turning breech babies.

As it's not your first, the baby is more able to turn later I think, but you will probabky be offered a scan around 36wks and an ECV around 37wks!

Thanks for the info Becky, that was great !!

I really do think she's stuck there, I can feel a huge hard lump when her head pushes up at my ribs, it's so sore. I'm half tempted to give her really hard prods to try and make her move that way
