My last period date is April 19, 2018. I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and just found out that my baby is in a breech position. What should I do in this situation? Is there anything I can do to help turn the baby into the correct position before delivery?

If your baby is in a breech position at 33 weeks of pregnancy, there are several things you can try to encourage the baby to turn head-down before delivery. One technique is called "forward-leaning inversion," where you kneel on a cushion and lean forward with your head down while someone applies gentle pressure on your lower back. Another method is called "the breech tilt," where you lie on an inclined surface with your hips elevated for about 10-15 minutes twice a day. Additionally, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and moxibustion (a traditional Chinese medicine technique) have been used to encourage babies to turn. It's important to consult with your healthcare provider before trying any of these methods to ensure they are safe for you and your baby. In some cases, if the baby remains in a breech position close to the due date, your healthcare provider may recommend an external cephalic version (ECV), which involves manually turning the baby from outside the abdomen. ECV has a success rate of around 50% and carries some risks, so it's essential to discuss this option thoroughly with your healthcare provider. If all attempts fail or if there are other medical reasons preventing a vaginal birth, a cesarean section may be necessary for the safe delivery of your baby. Remember that every pregnancy is unique, so it's crucial to work closely with your healthcare provider throughout this process for personalized guidance and support.
