Breech: All are excellent questions and must be answered by your OB

33+ wks with breech: With a breech presentation, your ob provider could turn the fetus into a vertex, making the likelihood of a vaginal delivery increase. Most would choose to elect induction after "version" of the fetus to vertex at about 39 weeks of pregnancy. Low lying placenta does not affect potential for vaginal delivery. If the fetus is not converted to a "head down" position, a C/S is likely the safest.
