Transverse lie

(5 Posts)

I am currently 34 weeks and baby is transverse lie and midwife doesn't seem to think baby will move before birth because it's so big and not much room left. Anyone any natural tips to get baby to engage? I really don't want a c section as I've already got a child at home X

I was panicking about this too, just over 34 weeks and the baby seem to turn overnight this week. Try, I tried a few of the exercises on there daily...not sure if it was a coincidence but worth a try

Still no luck 36+2 now got a scan in a few days to see if baby has turned but had midwife today and she said it still feels transverse. I am measuring 43 weeks as well. Really don't want a c section 😢

Mum sorry your baby has not moved. This happened to my dsis, during the section they found she had a bicornate uterus.

The positives of a planned section is that generally recovery is fairly uncomplicated and much better than a emergency section, I have had both.

How old is your other child?

I'm still hoping that baby turns but with me measuring so big it might be that baby is just simply too big now to move into position. My boy is 8, big age gap so he's feeling already a little jealous, if I have to stay away from him I'm scared it would make him feel worse.
