Hiya need plenty of tips & Advice please..
any tips on how i can get him to turn head down as i'm 36 weeks,have to have another scan in 2 weeks,if he hasn't turned by then. Then i'm being booked in for a c-section which i really don't want. Had my first child at 38+6 weeks so whats the chances of this one coming sooner then due date as well?

Hi, I had this with DS2 - I had reflexology sessions each week at 36 & 37 weeks with a reflexologist who worked on the sides of my feet where apparently there are womby-baby lumps when yr pregnant- you need to get one that knows what they're doing. About 4 hours after she'd been the second time, DS2 shifted head down - shockingly uncomfortable for the seconds it lasted! He was born 3 days later at just 38 weeks.
DD arrived at 39 + 3 weeks so she was actually later then him, so perhaps yr second will be later too??
Good luck!

i had reflexoology and moxibustion to turn my breech DD at 36 weeks (who had been every way but head down the whole pregnancy)

when i went for a scan at 37 weeks she had turned smile

also, try bouncing on a birthing ball, getting on all fours

try a website called spinning babies

i have heard that transverse babies can be harder to turn than breech
