    My baby was breech, I had a section booked for Tuesday but she turned at last minuite the monkey!! I would suggest maybe going on all fours and rocking backwards and forwards maybe? Although she could still turn on her own! Have you got a scan booked to confirm presentation?

    Good luck! :D

    Nothing I don't think! If baby is being a monkey then...

    I have heard that bouncing on the exercise ball, sitting legs apart as much as possible, sitting on all fours can help encourage bubs the right way though, but no guarantees!

    Mine was laying sideways until about 3 weeks ago. I didn't really do anything but it decided to move. I guess if yours is ready then she will twist herself!

    Good luck!

    Let gravity work for you - loads of walking including going up and downstairs and bouncing on a ball if you have one. Going on all fours and wiggling your bottom will allow him to face your back to stop him going back to back.... Good luck! x

    ive heard that being on all fours works and ive also heard of putting a bag of frozen chips or veg on top of your bump can encourage baby to flip

    hope your baby flips before wednesday

    play music down low...and put an ice pack up high. Baby will try to get away from the cold and go towards the music!

    It has been heard of for baby's to flip again but I think it's really unlikely, especially as the days go on as there'll be less space.

    Congrats though on her turning, hopefully she'll start making her decent soon lol!
