3 amazing breech birth videos
These breech birth videos may help to bring moms-to-be peace of mind.
The words “your baby is breech” can introduce a tremendous amount of anxiety into the preparation for birth. The doctor, midwife and doula may be well-acquainted with the attendant risks, but the expectant mother may be left feeling out of control over what will happen when it comes time to deliver.What is a breech birth?
Most babies are positioned head-down in the womb so that they are positioned to come out of the birth canal/vagina head first. If the baby is positioned so that the feet or bum will come out first, this is described as “breech presentation”. Reasons for this may be: that the baby is simply most comfortable in this position, there may be too little amniotic fluid, it may happen in a multiple pregnancy, the length of the umbilical cord and the size of the uterus. Doctors used to prefer to deliver breech babies via Caesarean section, but, depending on the circumstances, a breech baby may still be born vaginally, according to SOGC.org
