Hi,
If the baby is in transverse lie at the time of labor, provided the baby is small enough and the liquor is adequate, version may be tried either before labor or during labor if there is no fetal and maternal jeopardy. The fetal position would stabilize by the 34th-36th week and presentation would be obvious. If the transverse lie cannot be corrected, caesarean delivery is the choice to save the baby and further complications. Please take rest in left lateral position; there are no physical activities to help you get the baby to a required position. Hope your query is answered. Wish you safe delivery.

Hi,

Thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns.
Following is my reply:

1) If transverse lie, it is difficult to deliver normally.

2) It is unlikely for baby turn.

3) You can ask your gynecologist for a procedure called external cephalic version to coorrect baby posture.

Let me know if you have anymore doubts.

Hi Dear,
the lie of baby usually gets fixed around 36 weeks of pregnancy eccept when the baby is small or liquor i,e water in which baby floats is comparatively excess.
If the lie remains transverse even at term than in a normal size baby cesarean is the only option. however with an average baby and good amout of liquor, external cephalic vertion may be tried but it carries both the risk to mother as well as the baby.
So, if the thing goes in favor of cesarean section, dont hesitate as it will be beneficial for you as well as safe for your baby
All the best
