Turning a transverse/breech baby??

33 weeks and baby has moved from head down to now transverse / breech. They said he's not fully breech but a little more head up than transverse the stubborn little thing!
Just wondering if anyone has any tips on turning baby! Hoping there's still time for him to turn!

I'm 36 weeks and my baby is breach and I'm not worried yet. Still time to turn.

Here are the random things I've been told:
Bag of peas where head is to get her to wriggle away from the cold!
Husband talk to the bottom end to get her to wriggle in that direction.
Lots of being on all 4s so she has space to turn.
Lying on back with lots of pillows propped under bum so she slides out of the pelvis a bit again to give her space. Think this is recommended for 10 mins.

Try moxabustion. Risk free as baby will not turn if there is a reason to not turn.
Easy to do yourself with friend.

There's loads of time for him to turn. Two of mine were breech until about 36 weeks and then turned. Gravity will turn the baby in most cases or so I was told.

Don't worry yet smile

Definitely don't worry at 33 weeks. My DD was stubbornly transverse (oblique) until birth, i tried everything. Moxibustion is very effective. I had it done twice. Both times, she moved so vigorously i thought she was turning. After i had my c-section they told me the cord was very long and was tied around her preventing her from turning. She obviously tried but couldn't. This is rare though. Other things you can do are swimming and getting down on all fours to give baby space to move. Good luck!

I had moxibustion with dd.
She turned, whether it was from that or a different reason I'll never know...
