Statistics show that approximately 4% of babies end up in a breech position at full term. If this is you, it can be all-consuming and very discouraging, especially if you have your heart set on a vaginal delivery. Know that there is still hope that your babe can get into the head down (vertex) position.
Your doctor or midwife may recommend an ECV (external cephalic version) to turn the baby manually. You can use these techniques in preparation to make the ECV go more smoothly- or ideally, these techniques will help you to avoid needing the ECV at all.
