how long

How long does baby have to get into position for birth? I'm kind of scared my baby won't be in position or engaged and I'll have to get a c-section :/.....anyways to try and get her there?? I been on spinning babies but those positions are really uncomfortable for me... I've been on my birthing ball.....when did your baby turn?? How do you KNOW if they turn for good??

Your baby usually turn the 21 or 22 week if pregnancy. Some doctors give u different ways to get baby to turn. If so c-section will be ok, aslong you get to hold your lil bundle in your arms.

I am 34 weeks and my baby was breech at my apt on Friday. My midwife told me they usually turn head down by now. I went home, got on all fours and arched my back, I did it about 10 times and she turned halfway! So now I'm working on getting her all the way upside down. I'm hoping she just turns on her own

At my 24wk scan my daughter was still sideways but the following week I had my specialist appt and she had turned heads down...I had a scan last Tuesday (29wks) and she was still heads down...hopefully she stays that way because my Dr said they can change position last minute my son stayed heads down so I'm hoping she will do the same...I'm not sure how to help them turn :/ wish I could be of more help good luck love :))
