I completely relate to you because my daughter was breach till she was 34 weeks when my midwife performed a version.

The good news is it was successful and she was born three weeks later perfectly healthy at home.

When you feel that fear begin deep breathing and praying or visualizing your sweet boy turning head down. I have already begun telling Skylar how I want her to lay
and if he decides to be stubborn and stay breach the good news is you are doing a home birth and not only do midwives know a ton of tricks to get our sweet ones in an optimal position they will actually do breach births depending on the situation. Since you are not doing a hospital birth a breach baby is not an automatic c.
My brother in law was breach and in the process of his birth he turned.

So begin speaking positive affirmations to release the fear (fear causes pain) and embrace the fact that your body knows exactly what it's doing. And tell that baby to get head down
