Breech 39w4d - do I have c sec or leave to nature?

Hi, am 39 w 4 days with breech baby. Tried ecv x 2, acupuncture x 2, moxibustion, pulsatilla etc. Still breech. Booked in for c sec in 5 days but have a strong feeling to leave to nature to see if baby will turn. Are there reasons for baby to remain breech after such efforts to turn; what are chances of turning in labour??? Do I have elective c sec or leave to nature? Thanks

Answer: Hi, More than likely the baby will not turn now so you should plan for an elective caesarean. It is unfortunate but it seems as if you have tried everything. Best wishes, Alex.
