Transverse baby

Hi Ladies
Just a bit fretful. baby was head down is now lying transverse.
After having my head around VBAC, now talking about possible section being offered or a 3/4 turn (sounds horrid).

Anyone offer any advise/ reassurance.

Hi Andy I had this with Flo she moved about all over the place, breech, bum, footling, tranverse you name it! During labour it still wasn't clear what way she was sat but thankfully she came out the right way.

Have a look at Missy's diary she also went through the same with her DS.

Hi, Andy
Can't advise on the transvers thing, I am afraid - hopefully bubs will behave and turn for you though - it's not impossible

As for your ticker - there seems to be a space or you pressed enter between the

I tested it on my own ticker - made sure it all ran into one and it worked fine. Unfortunately I can't edit other peoples tickers for them though - might be an idea to drop Eeyore a line if you can't get it fixed...

Have you thought about going for a reflexology session or two? I know people who have done this to help turn baby and it's worked. They use moxi burning and for some reason babies turn around. Might be worth a shot for you to get your VBAC?

My pleasure, Hun. Ticker looks good. Can't believe that you will soon be "mom of 2"

As for moxy burning - I have no clue. Tried to look it up on the internet and the answers I came up with.... hmmmm.... I don't think any of them had anything to do with what is being suggested here...

Moxi burning or moxi bustion is where they put special candles in your ear an light them, I think. Not as dangerous as it sounds and it supposed to be really effective. I think they do it at the Chinese herbalist and I'm sure Holland and Barretts can point you in the direction of a practitioner.

Zack was breech quite late on but as I had drilled it into my cons that Csection was last resort they were happy to leave booking Csection until the last minute. At 38 weeks after being head down for a couple of weeks he decided to go unstable lie, turning transverse then breech then transverse again. The hospital were fab, I was monitored every 48 hours, initially they had wanted to keep me in at 38 weeks when he first went head down but as we live so close to the hospital and I had Lolly at home they relented. It was only that he went footling breech and my cervix was effaced and dilating that they booked me in there and then for my Csection.

My only advice is be clear on how you want this handled - you might be able to pencil a date for a section but your baby might turn of its own accord before then letting you have a natural birth. They never offered to turn Zack as he was unstable lie anyway there would have been little point as he could have turned back round during labour they said - as it was when they delivered him he had gone head down again!

No, Lauren was induced at 38 weeks. What was the reason for your 1st section?

Lolly was also breech at 36 weeks but she turned at 37 weeks so there is plenty of time still :happy:

The moxi burning they do with reflexology to turn babies is done under your little toe, it's in conjunction with a special reflexology session concentrating on that area of the foot as that is the part connected with the uterus and reproductive organs. Its very relaxing, and isn't drastic or scary at all! See if you can find a reflexologist in your area who does this treatment, most do. Above all else it's incredibly relaxing, but for some reason it does work to turn babies!
