In a pregnancy where the baby is breech, does the doctor try to invert the baby's position?

In brief: Maybe
You can either do a version or most likely for what is best for you have an elective c/s for breech.
Some patients depending on the number of previous deliveries might even attempt a vaginal delivery. Talk with you OB and a plan of action between you and your OB can be determined.

Unfortunately a vaginal breech delivery is no longer the standard of care & is not recommended...

In brief: Breech
External podalic version is the process by which an OB will attempt to change the presenting fetal part from breech to vertex.
This is a process done in a hospital by a skilled ob. The overall success rate is approximately 70 %. Many factors go into determing which patient is a candidate for this procedure.

External Cephalic Version is done around 37 weeks of gestation. Good success in certain cases.
