    Yes I had an ECV for my extended breech son which didnt shift him.

    I wouldnt opt for another, its quite uncomfortable but they do monitor you, if they can't move your baby you will get a date there and then for a Section

    I have my scan tomorrow to see if my baby is still breech. I'm pretty sure he is as he's been breech at every appoinment for 10 weeks now! I'm worried about the ECV as my friend had a bad experience but will make my mind up after talking to the doctor if he is still breech.

    I just wanted to wish u look.

    I had to av scan Tuesday cus MW thought he was breech but thank god he was head down. Ive read so many different things on a EVC and i dont really no if i could of gone through with it but i wouldnt want a c-section so i think i would of tried it. When u go just stay relaxed

    ecv (external cephalic version) its where baby is breech so a doctor/consultant will try to manually move baby around from putting pressure on ur belly till baby flips round to head down for a natrual birth,type ecv on utube n it will show you if ur intrested :) x

    My baby was frank breech (feet in front of her face) and I had an ECV a couple of weeks ago at 37 weeks. It's not very pleasant but they will only try three times and each try is only for about a minute. Mine was unsuccessful and I was booked for a c section at 39 weeks - yesterday. Anyway, I got to hosp yesterday, got all ready for surgery, they did a final scan to make sure she was still breech and the little monkey had turned! And I hadn't noticed her doing it at all! So anyway I got sent home to wait for natural labour to start. So even if your ECV doesn't work, your baby might still move at the last minute!

    I hope it goes ok xx

    Is an evc where the doctor puts loads of pressure at the bottom of your uterus? I went in with reduced movement and the docotr did this? Was he trying to turn LO or just prevoke a reaction?
    LO has been breech since 18 weeks. I'm now 30+3 he's been footling breach, frank breech and he's now flexed breech and looks a bit like a confused buddah :rofl:
