Although only 3-4% of babies are still breech by the time they make their entrance, sometimes babies turn on their own, sometimes babies turn with a little help and sometimes they just don't turn. Research tells us that only 7% of babies are still breech by 32 weeks* (EBB) So it's fair to estimate that around half of that 7% still breech by 32 weeks will turn before their due date.
Even though there's no 100% surefire guaranteed method to turn a breech or transverse baby head down before their expected arrival, we hope that we can help you find comfort in knowing that you explored and considered every option available and that you're confident in the decisions that you make in partnership with your trusted care provider.
We sincerely believe that higher rates of satisfaction with a client's birth experience are present, when the clients feels cared for, heard, validated and welcomed to participate in the conversations surrounding their care and decision making.
