I am getting a little freaked because my babe has been breech the last two midwife visits. I am now 30.5 weeks, first baby, very healthy pregnancy. At the 20 week u/s, and 25 week visit, she was vertex, so she must have flipped. If she is breech at 32 weeks, the midwife is recommending to start: homeopathic, then accupuncture, then chiropractic, and finally external version if all else fails. I am doing some pelvic tilts and visualization and swimming at this point. I am planning a homebirth, and can't do it (don't want to, and midwife will not) if she remains breech. I would attempt vaginal anyway in the hospital. I guess I am looking for some words of encouragement. Don't I still have a few weeks before I should start to worry about this??? Anyone have babies who turned after 30 weeks? The midwife keeps asking about any emotional reasons she may be remaining breech. I understand the point of this, but it feels a little like I am being blamed for her being breech, ykwim? As if I am not doing the right things, or don't have the right attitude. I am already feeling a little helpless.
