how much movement are you permitted? Do you have any limitations on position?
1st thing to do is get your hips up in the air, either on your back with several pillows under your hips, or on your chest with your bum up in the air (sort-of child's pose).
Meditate and talk to the baby; visualise shim turning head down and a smooth peaceful birth.
play music on earphones near your pubic bone or shine a light through your skin starting where he/r eyes are and moving it slowly down to where you want he/r head to be - many babies are curious about the sound or light and try to get closer to it.
massage your belly gently in the direction you want the baby to turn. They usually will do a forwards somersault more easily than a backflip.
send your baby a lot of love and reassurance. s/he may just feel better with an ear closer to your heart, and need to know it's safe to go the other way. My breech babe still loves to put her head on my heart, something my vertex baby had no particular tendency to do.
There's the frozen peas thing... you put a bag of frozen veggies against the back of the baby's head. but I didn't do that I thought it a bit mean. But it often works.
