Almost 36 weeks pregnant with breech baby

Hi there, I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and baby has been breech my entire pregnancy. This is my second baby, my first daughter was head down the whole pregnancy and was a vaginal birth so this is new to me. I am due on the 28th December 2015 and am worried that baby will not turn and there will be an emergency c-section due to the baby being breech and a difficult labour. I have been thinking and even though I would much prefer to go natural I am concerned that at x-mas/ New Years there will be limited experienced staff on at the hospital if I was to go into labour naturally with a breech baby. I have a OB appointment tomorrow at the hospital (GCUH) and I would like to request an elective c-section due to the time of the year baby is due and being breech. Has anyone had any experience with this? I am worried that they won't want to as my previous birth was natural.
