When should a baby flip positions?

Q: I'm 30 weeks along in my pregnancy and my baby has not flipped; she is still breech.  When will she flip, or how can I help her flip into correct position? I didn't have this problem with my other three babies.

A: Most babies turn head down by 35 weeks. Some babies never turn head down and women who are at term with a breech presentation may be candidates for External Cephalic Version. There are certain "exercises" (found at LiveStrong.com) that can help your baby turn, and the OB can demonstrate these for you.
