It’s very likely that, at this point, your baby has already turned upside down.

The position, also known as the vertex, is ideal for birth. However, the baby will still turn a couple of times before being born.

The lungs and nervous system have not matured completely, but this shouldn’t worry you if you happen to go into premature labor. Most babies born at this point don’t suffer any major health issues. There are favorable conditions for children to adapt to life outside of the womb with adequate care, even if they come to this world before they were supposed to. After all, your little one already began developing their own immune system, which can protect him/her against small infections. After they’re born during the 40th week, the immune system will get a boost through breast milk.
