Don't tell a Transverse lie

The Spinning Babies Website has evolved by adding articles, or posts in a way, addressing the various questions I have received about posterior babies and fetal positioning over the last five years. Currently, the most frequent question has been what to do about a baby that is lying in the womb sideways. This position is called a transverse lie. Rather than a vertical lie, the baby is sideways. Both breech and head down babies are in a vertical lie. It is easier for the baby to flip head down from a breech position than from a sideways position if the baby has been settled sideways awhile after the 7th month.

I added an article to the web site on transverse babies. Click on the top menu where the words say "breech and transverse."
