Popping in from the May
. I attempted a version when my daughter flipped to breech in my 37th week. They did a non-stress test before the attempt and again for an hour after the attempt.
The version itself was only 5-10 minutes. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. I compare it to a massage where they find a really tight spot and it hurts while they are working out the knot and you know if you just hang in there and breathe through it that it will feel really good in the end. My doctor tried 5 times to flip my daughter but she didn't budge at all.
My daughter ended up flipping on her own the next night and then my water broke two days later. I don't know if either of those things would have happened without the version.
I would do it again if I was in the same position. Hopefully your little one will flip on his/her own and you won't have to worry about anything.
