Transverse lie

(4 Posts)

I'm 33 weeks and have just been told that my baby is lying transverse. I've been booked in for ecv when I'll be just under 36 weeks. I don't know much about these. Has anyone got any experience? Does transverse lie definitely mean a c section. Could the baby be at risk?

Transverse lie definitely means a section - but there is still lots of time for your baby to turn.
I don't know much about ECV, I'm afraid.

I read this a while ago. Perhaps you could speak to your midwife and maybe try the sarong thing too?

Sit forwards, not back - on a ball if you can.

Spend some time on your hands and knees... and go swimming. There's still time, but you've got a better chance earlier on, the baby will run out of room to turn easily by 36 weeks.

I had 2 transverse lies. One turned to breech during the section, the other turned head down during labour. I had a failed ecv with my 1st who was breech. Spend lots of time on your hands and knees, cleaning floors if you are feeling 'nesty'.
