Baby is vertex! Baby is vertex!

I have been so anxious these past few days because on Thursday I found that baby was horizontal- transverse. Since i found out, i've tried: acupuncture, moxibustion nightly, webster technique, the inversions on spinningbabies.com. flashlights + headphones playing music into the pubic bone area, and lots of relaxation and visualization.

I scheduled a version in a hosp for wednesday, which was stressful b/c there are a lot of negative politics going on in NYC between midwives and obstetricians and it was nerve-wracking to try to beg a doctor to see a homebirth patient at this late stage. Today I went to meet the doc (a great one, very midwife friendly ultimately) and he took a quick u/s and baby's head is firmly rooted where it should be!

SO RELIEVED. Everyone who's not in the optimal fetal position: TRY THE NATURAL TURNING TECHNIQUES. THEY WORK!!

I'm a believer too!

My babe was breech at 35 weeks...did homeopathy and went to the chiro and baby was head down and engaged by 36 weeks.

Congrats to you! I know how much of a relief it is!

Huge relief!! Glad to hear it. Those worked for me last pregnancy. So far so good with this one being head down for weeks.
