This is when your baby is bottom first and we turn it to be head first. Click on the pamphlet link and you will see some pictures. It is all done from the outside of your tummy at around 37 weeks. It is only done by a senior doctor and your baby is monitored to make sure he or she is happy. You will be on B & A for about an hour. You will be given a date and time to come.
