No experience with ECV, but I'd try it before scheduling a c-section ... also you might look into a chiropractor. I don't remember what it's called but there is a chiropractic technique that is supposed to be quite successful at spinning babies.

I myself am a little confused concerned following my own appt today ... baby feels like she is head down, but then the heart beat was found in a location that doesn't support the idea of a head down baby. She checked again and said, I really think this baby is head down (baby has been head down at 3 sonograms beginning at 15 weeks). But I'm still a little freaked. I've had 2 natural, unmedicated births and am a bit concerned about the prospect of my 3rd being a c-section if baby is transverse / breech.

My only experience with it was that one of my pregnancies the doctor was talking about doing it if he did not flip.

I will type up what really happened at mine yesterday to give you an idea, however, I was not given an epideral or any type of pain med so it might be different for you since you would have the spinal already in place.

When I got to the hospital I had to check in and basically be admitted to labor and delivery for the afternoon.
