anyone had a ECV? (baby turned)

hiya girls just wondered if anyones had this and what ur opinions are of it?! my bub is breech at mo (31.3 wks) i know he prob turn just wondering and getting all facts!! thanks girls xxxx


  • hi i wouldnt worry, there is still loads of time for the baby to turn round him/herself. i amost had to get baby turned last time but it was 38 wks before they even worried about it, baby did eventually turn herself.even if baby was to go head down just now, he/she could still turn around again so dont worry about that just yet x;19;29/st/20080523/dt/5/k/1ec5/preg.png

  • well my little boy was breech and they were about to do the ecv and give me the meds, (salbutamol iv i think, softens the area around baby) and checked heartbeat of baby and was too high so had to have a planned section 2 weeks later. When they did that they found cord was extra long and round his neck so maybe was not right for me.
    Still plenty of time to turn and and turn back, so hang in there.

  • just wanted to say thanks girls xxxx hopefullyhe will turn lol
  • My sister had one of these with her first as he was breach and she said never again! It was very painful and doesn't work in a lot of cases anyway so I don't think it's worth the pain!! Fingers crossed he will turn for you in the next couple of weeks. Make sure you do the exercises recommended for getting baby in perfect position!! - some of these look interesting!! xxxx
