I've heard that the spinning babies website is meant to be good for tips.

Swimming worked for me first time round.

Nothing worked for me second time round.

At the daisy pregnancy yoga class I go to the teacher recommended getting onto all fours and rocking back and forth to turn back to back babies. There were a few girls at 36-38 weeks and she'd recommended they do it at home a few times a day.

When I was in labour with dd and she was back to back the mw said to lay on my left side- she said it was the only thing she had ever know to work. It did and dd came out very easily once turned.

Labour was long but I had other complications that had nothing to do with dd being back to back. The 'official' time on my medical notes was 8 hours. I had problems dilating and kept stop starting so I remember it as more like 36 hours! Once she crowned they turned her anyway. I had labour pains in my back rather than my tummy. Honestly, it was fine.
