That's my midwife's policy... she hasn't done very many breeches, but there's another midwife about 4 hours away w/ lots of breech experience who assists other midwives w/ breech (hope that makes sense!).
Turn babies, turn!

Breech birth isn't inherently wrong. It is mainly in the skill of the attendent i.e. hands off and patient. My midwife was willing to drive 4 hours to help me. She is very experienced in breech but basically all she did was keep babe from landing on the floor! I have the birth on video and have been trying to get it transferred to dvd so I can share it. Breech birth does look different than vertex. It is hard to tell that it really is a baby that is being born until you can see the legs. My breech babe didn't come until
39w3d. My second pg babe was breech until a couple days before he was born at 37w3d. Also my mom had a breech babe that turned during labor. The dr was prepared for breech and was surprised to see a head (1961).
Do you have any ultrasound photo places around you? They are usually in a mall or strip mall shopping center. I went to one in Las Vegas (1.5 hour drive for me), a lot cheaper than an OB and less stressful.

I don't think so.." Ultrasound didn't think so either, so we're good for our mw homebirth, yess!! (unless of course this babe decides to turn back or something)
Sending turning vibes your way!
