I am getting ready to attend a birth and she is due at the end of october, so she is about 37 weeks. She called me today to let me know that the doctor told her that the baby is breech and big! This is her second pregnancy and she was hoping for a VBAC without any intervention. Her section was over eight years ago and up until today everything was looking very positive and on the right track.
I am a newer doula, I have attended 5 births as a doula and an additional two as an observer. This is my first VBAC and was really excited to see her body do it's job well! I am a little bummed but I am an eternal optimist when it comes to birth. I am trying to get her some information so that she can try to turn the baby. She has an appt for moxibustion today, recommended by her doctor.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. I am familiar with many methods of turning the baby, I just want to hear stories of what has worked and what hasn't worked.
Happy Doulaing! :)
