Unfortunately there are not many success stories on here!
Our 2 attempts failed - my girl was just wedged in so much they couldnt even get her out my pelvis - and that was 2 doctors trying to shift her round at the same time!
I am also glad I gave it a shot, and would say to anyone else at least give it a shot.
While we are talking of breech babies...anyone have any idea whether having a breech increases your chances of another breech??
Anna was breech for every appt/scan we ever had and did not ever go head down once.......I know I am only 28wks today, but just have this feeling its going to be another stubborn breech. Have midwife appt today so hopefully she might give me an idea of babys position!
Hope LO stays put!!
No idea I'm afraid but did you have to have a c section Ellie?x
Yes, Anna was born by c-section at 39+3 after failed ECV at 38+5.
Had my 28wk midwife appt today and asked her if having a breech increases chance of another breech - she said 'oh no, not at all - that would be very unlikely' and then proceeded to measure me/feel baby etc...as I said last night I have a feeling this is another breech - YES baby is breech! I know its only 28wks, but Anna was breech from 27wks onwards and didnt shift once!!! So much for my vbac!!! No, try to stay positive!!
I had a successful ECV with my first and would definately recommend at least giving it a go!! There have been quite a few threads scaremongering about this topic and saying how unsafe etc it is but I believe it was safer to try and turn my baby than to have surgery!!
A lovely positive post - thank you so much! I really hope bub stays head down for you and if any other women have to have an EVC i hope it's just as simple!
My bubs is going between breech and transverse at the moment and i have a feeling he won't turn the right way on his own. Does anybody know if having a tilted womb and anterior placenta would make having the EVC more difficult?
I've had a natural birth with a small amount of gas and air previously with no complications. I'd prefer not to opt for c-sect unless i have to if bubs doesn't move on his own, but because of these things plus other complications i've had during this pregnancy (unexplained heavy bleeding in third tri, high bp) i'm not sure if the EVC is something the doctors would consider for me. The scan technician seemed to hint with positioning and stuff that a section seemed most likely if he doesn't move on his own
