Breech Baby
I'm sure there must be some ladies who had breech babies? I would appreciate it if you could tell me the pro's and cons of this. Gynie will next week decide if he'll go ahead with a C-Section as my baby is in breech. I'll be 36 weeks then.

My biggest concern at present is, if and when I do go into labour that it might be earlier than planned and the baby might go into 'stress'. How long will be baby be safe inside the womb / survive?

The problem of distress would only arise at delivery or if your waters broke.
