I am 36 weeks and plan to have a c section (had to have 1 last time). My baby is breech. Just wondering if they will still try to turn her at my hospital appointment next week? Also, will I have a scan? Feeling v uncomfortable!
Whether you have ECV is your choice - don't be bounced into it. ECV is sometimes quite unpleasant and it does not improve outcomes even if the baby turns. This is what the results of a study that accumulated the results of a number of other studies so quite reliable:
"The intrapartum cesarean delivery rate after successful version is 2 times that in pregnancies where there is spontaneous cephalic presentation"
A double risk of emergency caesarean means that overall an elective caesarean is far safer. EMCS, as you know, are a lot riiskier than ELCS.
However, this does not mean that atttempting a vaginal birth is hugely risky - just that in making the decision, you should know the small extra risk. I would read some of the threads on women who have had ELCS versus potentially complicated vaginal birth and make your own choice.
Personally, I would decline ECV but good luck whatever you choose.
I had an ECV with my first, so obviously no previous c section. Was uncomfortable but not painful, worked perfectly and I then had a successful vaginal delivery on dd's due date. I know nothing abt whether it is a possibility to have an ECV after a c section but I would definitely do it again if I had another breech baby.
