    At my last 2 midwife appointments my little girl has been head down but when I went last week she wasn't - and since then I have had the most painful pain under my rib

    Is there anything that I can do to make her move head down? I am really worried about having to have a ceaserean (sp) :(

    Any advice?

    If she is breech you want to lie with your hips higher than your head for a period every day- this website might help-

    Crawl around on your hand and knees round the house is supposed to help them turn or using a birthing ball.

    I second the hands and knees position and any positions that allow more space in your pelvis for baby such as forward leaning positions.

    Dylan didn't engage till the last minute..i used a birthing ball and it seemed to really shift him..my labour was 2 hours 20 mins so don't think it will have any impact on your time in labour

    it really opens pevis, but dont do it if baby is back to back as u want to avoid letting them engagde whilst hes the wrong way as its harder to turn them
