Moxi. My accupuncturist claims excellent luck with turning breech babies.
I only had time to browse the other replies, but there is plenty of research out there that breech deliveries aren't as dangerous as they are made out to be. Unless they are in that extended neck position, which to this day I still can't figure out how they can tell a baby is in this position without ultrasound. If anyone knows please share, I've been racking my brain on the idea all week reading those sections of Obstetric Myths and Research Realities
over and over at work LOL! I guess if you can palpate the spine and feel the back of the head sticking out? What if the baby is sideways or posterior? OK, I give up.
If your midwife isn't willing to take that on at home find out if anyone in the area would. If not then find out if there is a hospital in the area where they have been doing them lately (sometimes a teaching hospital is best but of course that itself carries it's own worries IMO)
You are still early yet and most likely the baby will turn, but if not take advantage of all the gentle turning techniques out there, it can't hurt to try and they have great sucess rates.
I can totally understand being worried, but read read read all that is out there. There is alot of research and stories.
