How do I encourage 5 month old to roll over?

Hello, my 5 month old has been threatening to roll over for a few weeks now but can't quite make the final push. She lies on her back and gets into a position I can best describe as 'the recovery position' but can't get any further. I've tried putting toys just out of reach but she just can't get her arm out the way.
She has gone from her front to back but only once.
Any suggestions, thank you?

Does it bother her? If not then just leave her to it - she'll get there in her own time smile

My DS had lots of tummy time, but didn't roll until after he crawled, my HV said it wasnt a problem, even now he isn't bothered about rolling, he hit other milestones on time or early, don't worry she will do it in her own time.

She's getting a bit frustrated but I'm sure she'll get there in her own time like you say...
