Hi, I'm 37 and a half weeks and hoping to have a home waterbirth. But baby has been oblique/transverse for the last few weeks. I really, really don't want a section!1 Any suggestions for how to get baby into a good position, words of encouragement?!

Both mine were very late tuners my ds was 37wks and my dd was at 38wks and with my dd I was booked in for a c-section. But I crawled about on my hands and knees for about 2days LOL and done pelvic rocking and one nite about 9pm I felt a weird popping noise and lots of movement, when I went to midwife next day baby was head down and third in the birth canal. That was over 2yrs ago now lol

DS was oblique. He had a huge head as well (measured by the paed for 5 days after birth) and afterwards the OB said there was no way I could have pushed him out (just as well, as I had no intentions!). He had to be ventoused out

I had an elective CS planned anyway.
