|Anything I can do to help the baby to turn into the head down
There are doctors and midwives who are skilled at what
is called external version, where an attempt is made to
turn the baby by the manipulation of the abdominal area.
The external version will usually be carried out at a hospital
in case there is a problem and a caesarian becomes necessary.
You will probably be given medication to help relax the
uterus which will aid the procedure, and the baby will be
monitored. This is in case of any problems that may arise
with the cord, which can get entangled or pulled of the
uterine wall, or the placenta, which can get separated from
