How to Turn a Breech, Posterior or Transverse Baby

There are many ways you can help turn a baby into the optimal position for birth. These exercises and positions have worked for me with 3 of my pregnancies and for many of my clients.
Be patient do the Exercises for at least 10-14 days. If your baby is still in a poor birthing position at 36 weeks I would suggest Accupuncture. I also have a blog post on this site which includes more exercises to do and positions to avoid

Please Comment on this post, I love hearing all your feedback


  1. Hello,
    I have a question about your blog, could you email me?

  2. Thank you for the nice explanations. I have a question though. I was diagnosed with a transverse baby at 30 weeks and my cervix is trying to open but I did not ask how wide. Is it possible to do these exercises still with the opening cervix?

  3. Hi thanks for your post. You need to be very careful especially as you are carrying transverse. The upside down position would be ok and definately try to sleep the right side to turn your baby. Check with your LMC to ensure exercises are ok- Lorraine

    1. Thank you very much for your prompt reply, I will try it and get back to you

  4. Hii Lorraine, I just did one exercice on my bed, I placed my head and chest low and raised my but up for some minutes, after that I came out of the bed with my hands down to the floor first, that same moment my baby started turning and continued for a whole day and now my baby is head down. Thank you

  5. Wow thats fantastic, good luck for the birth!
