Have you any information on the ECV?

ECV or External Cephalic Version is where the doctor tries to turn your baby from the outside using an ultrasound scan to see what’s happening inside.

It can be a bit uncomfortable and isn’t always successful at turning your baby. The main risk is the baby becomes distressed by the procedure in which case you will need an emergency section. However if your baby remains breech you will be having a section either way. If you’re keen to avoid a section it is worth a try…good luck!
