I''m 36 weeks and have an oblique lying baby. Will he move or will this affect my birth?

  I''m 36 weeks and have an oblique lying baby. Will he move or will this affect my birth?

The majority of babies, about 95%, will be cephalic (head down) by 37 weeks. Some babies may be breech (bottom first), oblique (any position between transverse and breech or cephalic), or transverse (lying sideways). So by 37 weeks, if your baby is not pointing head down, your obstetrician may try to gently move your baby head down by pressing on your abdomen (external version) or advise a Caesarean Section. It is not possible and potentially dangerous for babies to be delivered vaginally if they remain in transverse or oblique position when labour starts.
