I’m 37 weeks and my baby is still in a breech position. I’m frustrated because I really wanted to have a vaginal birth. What can I do to get the baby to turn head down?
There’s a lot you can do! Here’s an article from the American Academy of Family Physicians. In it, you’ll find a list of things you can try at home along with an explanation of external cephalic version, a hands-to-belly procedure your doctor can perform.
I suggest you talk to your doctor about doing a version—or helping you find someone who has that skill—right away because 37 weeks is the optimal time to get it done. As the baby grows and there’s less amniotic fluid, the success rate for turning the baby falls.
