In brief: Delivery

There is still time for the baby to turn.
If not your OB will decide if this delivery is ok vaginally or will need a c - section. Good luck.

In brief: 3rd time is a charm

Chances of turning are a coin toss but if this is a third vaginal birth, either heads or tails should be a breeze.
