ideas to flip a breech baby

i'll be 38 weeks on Friday. Little boy in there is either footling breech or transverse.. I am looking for ways to flip him. Tomorrow we go to the mw and I'm going to get a chiro if what I'm doing isn't working.. but I'd like all ideas!!

Crazy internet was telling me things like put cold things at the top of my belly..

PS I have been looking at other websites like spinning babies etc.. I just wanted to know what worked for others!!

I heard that putting a flashlight at your tummy's bottom will make the baby turn and look.

I went to the chiro a couple times and that helped. Hard to know exactly what did the trick, but I also did handstands in the pool and inversions.

I was breech, and my Mom said that for weeks, all she did was push on her belly and gently try and move me, it worked, I ended up flipping and no section was needed!

Putting something cold on top of your belly while sitting in a hot bath is a good idea actually. I did that a couple times, too!

My LO was transverse from 18 weeks to 36 weeks. I tried everything. Hot/cold. Light. Music. Spinningbabies. Finally went to the chiro and after 2 adjustments she turned and stayed head down. Good luck.

Another vote for chiro. Accupuncture as well!
