Babies: 0 - 3 Months

baby is breech and I need to make some decisions -

basically, I am 36 weeks +-.  Thursday is my next apt and I have to be ready to choose how to manage the baby being breech.

options: 1. have her try and turn him (version) at week 37, if

it works, and he stays that way - wait to go into labor naturally, have a vag. birth


hope he turns on his own

    I suggest seeing a chiropractor for the Webster technique.  I was breech at 35 weeks with a large baby who my OB said would not flip due to his size.  I saw a chiropractor 1, and at my second visit he had flipped, and stayed down.  I highly recommend as there is no risk to you or baby (unlike a version), even if it doesn't work, it should help with any back pain you might be having.

    At 37 weeks after trying everything else we tried the verison.  It didn't work for us but I have heard of success stories.  And I'll tell you it was SUPER painful.  I think it was more painful than any of the recovery from the c-section.  You can read more about my version and breech experience in my blog from December. 

     Good luck with everything!
