Hi, Mama. If you’re reading this, your pregnancy is not going the way you planned. It’s kind of ironic. Only 4% of babies reach full-term in the breech position. Yet somehow, someway, your baby fell into that statistic. When I found out that my baby was breech at 36 weeks, the doctor laid three options out for me: figure out a way to turn my baby naturally, schedule a planned c-section, or have an external cephalic version (ECV).
If you’re in the same boat, I feel you.
Most likely, your doctor has already recommended an ECV to turn your baby. If you’re anything like me, there are questions floating around in your head: Should I have an ECV or a c-section? Is an ECV safe for my baby? My goal is to answer these questions and give you the info you need to decide if you should have an external cephalic version.
