ya they should have!!!! they usually have to do that around 37 weeks so the baby has enough room....
the chiropractor can do something called the webster
you can try accupunture

there are a lot of little things that you can try like flash light

check out spinningbabies . c o m

Is there anyone else in the practice you can see asap?  Yes they should have already tried to flip baby

Yay I am
Happy that the baby turned for you! Hopfully she stays that way :)

That is ridiculous that you midwife is not seeing you till your due.... You should be getting seen every week to get blood pressure and urine checked!

I'm surprised you're not being seen more often as well. Is that typical with a midwife? I had two week appointments at 32 weeks and started weekly appointments at 35 weeks.
