Why is my baby not in the right position?

Most fetuses spend some time lying sideways in the uterus. At 28 weeks, one in five fetuses are in the breech position (head up, buttocks down). Eventually, at around 36 weeks, the majority of babies are positioned with their head down toward the mother's vagina.
