    My husband and I were both breech–back in the days when doctors knew how to deliver breech babies. My sister’s first was breech, so she had a c-section when they couldn’t turn him.

    Thus, I was terrified of both my kids being breech. Neither was, thankfully; but C’s head was sideways, I think.

      Oh wow! Both you and hubby? I was reading that subsequent babies have a higher chance of being breech than first ones – cuz we are all stretched out? It sounded weird to me.Syrana

    I am only 14 weeks along, but this has already been on my mind a lot. I want a natural, unmedicated birth as well, and really hope that everything goes smoothly for that. This is my first pregnancy, so I really don’t know what to expect! I watched a documentary on Netflix a couple months ago called “Pregnant in America”, and they said the same exact thing, that doctors just don’t know how to deliver breech babies anymore, and that it IS possible, if they are trained correctly. It’s a very interesting show, if you care to watch it. Glad to hear your baby has turned!

    Ive thought about this too! I’d probably try to find an OB who would do breech delivery, if all methods of turning have failed. I delivered my first baby naturally with no pain meds and it is important to me as well to avoid certain things. You’ve inspired me to check if there are any doctors skilled in this around me. If I can not find one, I would not attempt a home birth breech delivery, because the home birth climate in my area is iffy and I don’t trust it. I would have a c/s then… I know there are a few hospitals here with VBAC friendly doctors and I have had a successful vaginal delivery, so I’m not concerned about having to have all c/s afterwards.

    My baby Was breech at 38 weeks and I dint want a CSS tion so my doctor performed a manual turning of the baby ( forget scientific term). Not sure how many dr’s still do this. It was a tiny bit uncomfortable but it worked for me.

    Chiropractic care can do wonders to turn breech babies. As can the exercises you mentioned.

      That’s great to hear – did you do them know someone who did? I don’t know anyone personally who’s had to get baby turned.Syrana

    My 3rd baby (out of 5) was breech, one leg up and one leg down. It happened during the last month of pregnancy. My Dr. gave me no choice, either baby flips or I get a c-sect. Of course I ended up getting an emergency c-sect. (a whole other story). Dr’s just do not know what they are doing when it comes to breech deliveries. I wish I had known ahead of time so I could have found a different dr. I have recently heard of a couple of friends who used acupressure and acupuncture to help baby flip – and it worked! It took about a day or so, but it worked!
