I`ve just been told my baby is in an unstable position

Hi Alex,
I am 31 weeks pregnant with my second child and have just been told my baby is in an unstable position. Is there anything I can do to encourage the baby to turn and engage in the next few weeks? My first son`s birth was natural and I was hoping for the same again.
Thanks, Brooke

Answer: Hi Brooke,
It is really too early to worry too much about your baby’s position. It can continue to move around a lot up until around 36 weeks. As the baby gets bigger it will run out of room so it will settle in a better position for the birth.
Best wishes,
Alex
