WHEN IS BREECH A PROBLEM DURING PREGNANCY
BREECH BABY BEFORE 30 WEEKS:
Typically a breech baby is not big deal before 30 weeks. Just make sure to keep moving, keep walking and avoid leaning back while sitting too much.
BREECH BABY BETWEEN 30-34 WEEKS:
This is the ideal time to flip your baby if they are in the breech position. There is still enough fluid in your uterus for baby to move easily, when a few simple techniques are applied, such as a forward-leaning inversion.
BREECH BABY AT 35 OR 36 WEEKS:
If your baby hasn’t flipped by this time, your doctor or midwife may start instructing you to do techniques to flip the baby, and may even talk about scheduling a manual version. We’ll talk more about these techniques in just a bit.
BREECH BABY AT 37-38 WEEKS:
Babies are unlikely to turn on their own at this point, but it’s still possible. Nows the time to have the what now discussion with your provider and determine if you will need a c-section, or if it’s safe for you to have a vaginal birth.
