Hi, how late did your baby turn to be head down?
I am currently 33 weeks & 6 days pregnant & my baby is still breeched. We are planning a home birth but of course a breeched baby will prevent this.
Should I be concerned?
Thanks in advance ; )

I know someone who had a breech baby at home, but in saying that they didn't know baby was breech at the time, and mum did say she didn't know if she would have opted for the home birth had they known. DS1 was supposedly breech at about 33 weeks..a scan at 35 weeks confirmed that he was head down and well engaged, which to me suggests he was never breech in the first place. I spent a lot of time on my hands and knees and upside down in the two weeks between being told he was breech and the scan though so who knows. unsure
There is a procedure known as ECV (External Cephalic Version). As another poster has said, there are risks involved and it's not guaranteed to work, or that if it does baby will stay head down. I might have taken one if offered, but was moot in my case.
