I would ask your Dr about doing a version. My OB is VERY experienced with delivering vaginal breech babies, but vaginally delivering a transverse baby is simply NOT
an option for even the most experienced and skilled OB such as my OB (who is a nationally recognized for doing VBAC's and delivering vaginal breech) A transverse presentation always
necessitates a c-section. (I think maybe some of the ladies replying don't understand this.)
But according to my OB, performing a version for a transverse baby is actually better than trying to do a version for a frank breech in most cases.
It could be that your OB simply does not have the skills needed to do a version, and I would suggest if possible you find an OB who can assist with a version.
Or it could be that there is something preventing a version such as low placental position, or some other reason. Ask your OB about it.
My OB is totally willing to allow me to vaginally birth my frank breech baby, but he is not going to attempt a version with me. He would do a version if my baby was in a transverse position though. I hope your LO turns!
