I had son in 11-25-11had C-section only because he was breech. Im currently pregnant due in 8-28-14 could i ask to try for a vaginal birth?
Why?: You probably aren't going to find a lot of OB docs willing to suggest you jump start labor at 36 week nor with being breech. Neither is a good idea as you are still preterm and most OB providers don't do breech vaginal birth anymore. Have you discussed if you are a candidate for external cephalic version? This a procedure where the doctor attempts to turn baby back to head down. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

38 weeks pregnant first baby, is there a chance that she changes from a breech position? Have been doing several exercises over the past few weeks
Possible!: Breech is when the baby's head isn't pointing down to the cvx/vagina. Frank/footling meanthe baby's feet are either tucked up to its head/dangling down to the vagina. Many reasons why; sometimes baby's size, shape of uterus, rarely it's babies w/ a neuro disorder. >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks. OBGYNs can perform a version to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
