Will the transverse lie position of the fetus lead to any complications?

Q: I am 5 months and 2 weeks pregnant. On anomaly scan, it was found that my baby is having transverse lie. What are the chances of the baby changing its position by the time of delivery? If the baby won't change its position, will it affect its development in anyway? I want to avoid caesarean section. Could you please suggest some ways that I can adopt to change the position of my baby?

A:Until late in pregnancy, which means 30-40 weeks, the fetus floats free in the uterus. It has no fixed position. The position fixes only in the last three months. Therefore, it is perfectly normal to have a baby in a transverse lie at your stage of pregnancy. The baby will take up a position on its own later and there is nothing that needs to be done to ensure a normal final position. That is Natures job and does not need anything from you! The position of the baby does not affect its development.
