I was 35 weeks pregnant with baby #3, and the baby was still transverse. My doctor scheduled a follow up appointment for 36 weeks, and if the baby hadn't turned by that point, she would schedule a 37 week hospital procedure to attempt to manually turn the baby.
I went home and read a testimonial on this website, and one from the book "Gentle Babies" by Debra Raybern, on how to get a baby to turn from a transverse position to a head-down position. Based upon what I read, I applied YL peppermint oil in a rainbow type shape over my belly right before I went to bed that night. The next morning I woke up, and immediately could tell that the baby had changed position. I just got back from my 36 week prenatal appointment, and the doctor confirmed that the baby is head-down and engaged.
