    I had a friend who used the Breech Tilt method to help turn her baby - and it worked for her.

    Breech Tilt - begin at 32-35 weeks gestation. Do 3 times daily for 10-15 minutes each time, when you have an empty stomach, and the baby is active. Prop one end of an ironing board securely on a sofa or chair 12 to 18 inches high (or may use slant board). Lie down, bend knees but keep feet flat on board. Relax, breathe deeply, avoid tensing. May also use pillows on a flat surface to raise hips 12-18" above shoulders. Gravity pushes the baby's head into the fundus, tucks it, and baby can then do a somersault to a vertex position.

    Good luck,
    SARAH

    Although not preferable, a well trained OB/GYN should be competent enough to deliver a breech baby anyway. Just a thought?
    Good luck whatever the outcome.

    just wanted to update all. I tried Moxibustion, Acupunction and also Foot Reflexology and nothing worked.

    I"m at 38wks now and my last U/S is tuesday and i"m actually ok with C section. Its not about what i want but what the baby needs right?

    So i just wanted to thank everyone's suggestions.
    FYI, i went to IMI and unfortunately I'm less than impressed.

    my second child was breech until nearly 37 weeks and then turned. I was doing pelvic tilts, swimming and acupuncture so who knows what did or didn't help!

    1stimemum - who did you see at IMI? I have had great results at IMI for both inducing labour and turning the breech baby.

    hi aussiemum,

    I saw Gianni (sp) at IMI. oh and i did the pelvic tilts too and the cold peas. Gianni was very nice but she didnt disinfect the skin where needles were placed and immediately after needles were taken out, which is std protocol. needles are clean obviously.

    I think my previous experience at Vitality was a touch better thats all.
