Answer: Hello dear, Transverse Lie” is a sideways position. The baby has his head to one of his mother's sides and the bottom across her abdomen at her other side. This is normal before 26 weeks. By 29-30 weeks we expect babies to be head down, or at least breech.
It's almost impossible to deliver a transverse baby vaginally. So if a baby is still lying sideways at term or when labor begins, a C-section (caesarean) may be the safest option for delivering the baby.
If a transverse position is confirmed near term, the woman may be advised to be admitted to the hospital, as there is a minor risk of the umbilical cord slipping out of the uterus once water breaks.

The baby faces towards the mother’s back between the right hip and the spine of his or her mother.
The crown of the LOA baby’s head most often enters the pelvis first. Tucking the chin helps the baby fit the pelvis in a way that the baby’s head can mold (shape) most effectively to fit the pelvis.
The baby’s back can curve most effectively in this position. The baby slides down the softening abdomen in the last weeks of pregnancy to enter the brim. The head enters the pelvic brim at about 38 weeks in a first-time mom, perhaps later in an experienced birthing woman.
