I have neither experience with nor advice on transverse babies, but I do have a story that I hope will reassure/inspire you.
My neighbor (homebirthing, homeschooling mom of 6) was 8.5 mos. PG w/ her 5th baby. Babe had been vertex for weeks. It was July 4, and the family got together w/ another HS family at the other family's farm to celebrate. Come evening, the dads started lighting fireworks. One of them was so loud that when it went off, mom (my neighbor) felt a giant jerk in her belly. It had scared the baby into a transverse position!
Baby stayed that way until labor started. It was a long labor, b/c babe had a lot of maneuvering to do and was big (over 10 lbs.), but the whole birth took place at home, w/ no complications.
