Answer: Hi, This is quite common and more than likely the baby will sort itself out and you will be able to plan for a vaginal birth. If it does not turn then a doctor may be able to move it into a better position using ultrasound and palpation. THis can bve quite effective and is not painful or harmful to the baby. Best wishes, Alex
