“Would it be possible to get a question posted? I am interested in the views, opinions and experiences of other Mummas out there on baby turning… I am 32 weeks, and my scan today revealed that she has her butt firmly parked on my cervix! Has anyone got any tips to turn baby within the next 6 weeks? I have 5 children at home and being on my own, cannot afford the recovery time of a caesar” Do you have any advice on a turning baby?

  • You’re only 32 weeks, bub will most likely turn before his/her due date. Having said that, my first didn’t and ended up coming breech :/ But majority do turn

  • I know this won’t sound like fun but my mum swears that it always worked for her. she would get on her hands and knees and scrub the floor, and each time it worked. (8 kids later)!

  • Hope all went well for the rest of your pregnancy

  • There would be still plenty of time for baby to turn, you just have to wait for them to do it themselves.

  • If the turn they will on their own

  • I hope bub moved. spinningbabies.com is a great site!

  • I hope bub moved for you

  • Hope all ended up going well with the new arrival

  • More often than not they end up turning on their own

  • Sometimes it turned on its own. I was told go on hands n knees to encourage it. Don’t know how that helps but hey I wanted to try anything

  • has the bubs turned? have you delivered yet?

  • Some times babies can turn at the last minute I wouldn’t worry. My sisters baby turned at 36 weeks.

  • They usually turn over themselves and midwives will try to move the baby before your due date if it hasn’t already done so

  • Don’t worry though she will turn some baby’s turn last minute :D

  • Massage your tummy and try to turn her around :-)
