Webster is helping for us... baby flipped breech the day after xmas (uhm.. 35 weeks?) and was so until last night (I think..)
I've been to this (new) chiro 3x, the first was a regular full visit, I was really crooked, and felt so much better.
On Mon and Wed this week it was just webster technique... I know it helped make space in my body, I could feel that.. I could move baby around (not engaged at all) and babe would float up when I would rest upside down, etc.
So last night I did my own mini-ECV.. I was resting with hips above my shoulders (stacked pillows) and baby floated up toward my ribs, and I put the heel of my hand in under the butt, and just gently nudged it up higher and higher until there was nothing in the bottom half of my belly... then I rolled right (bum was on the left) and still upside down, hung out there for a while, and never let the pressure off of the babe, but never really pushed hard either... and then I did long long slow rubs down the right side of my belly to encourage babe to move that way, which it didn't, but it didn't fly back down the left side either.. it was bedtime so I continued to rub and nudge in bed, and the head/shoulders finally moved down lower than bum.
There was a lot of wiggling last night, and I had a lot of hip pain, but this morning it seems there is a bum and feet up in my ribs.. going to the midwife this afternoon, so we'll know for sure, but I'm pretty good at identifying body parts.
Going back to the chiro tomorrow again, as I'm also pretty sure this babe is posterior now. But I'd take a posterior baby over a breech one any day!
