Baby's head is lying to right of pelvis. I know there's plenty of time for it to sort itself out but is there anything I can or should be doing to help it along? Thanks for any advice.

Same as for breech (I think). Swimming, scrubbing floor hmm, leaning over forwards... Nothing helped for me though, but each LO is different... Good luck.

hi, you can help things along. I'm currently 30 weeks with a transverse baby and have found this site.

It gives loads of information about getting the baby in the best postion for labour.

There is still plenty of time for the baby to move, but you can help by avoiding certain positions for sitting e.g sitting back on a sofa with your feet up, which is a shame because it's what we all want to do the most smile

thanks - think part of prob is that dd was ceph throughout so i've probably been a bit lax this time whereas last time i was doing yoga etc etc... will have a proper look at that website now

hi again, just wondering how late people's babies have got into position. I thought i had plenty of time but have been reading that they're usually in position by 36 weeks which is only four days away for me - eek!
