“This innovative film is about the profoundly important and sacred opportunity we have in bringing children into the world.  Surprising and sometimes shocking it challenges our beliefs about what infants are thinking and doing.  It includes ground-breaking information on early development as well as appearances by the real experts: babies and their families.”

VIDEO – Vaginal Breech (WHO)

Here is an absolutely fabulous video put out by the World Health Organization’s Reproductive Health department.  It details the indications and counter-indications for a vaginal breech birth, methods of birthing a breech vaginally (totally FASCINATING), as well as symphiostomy (when the head becomes entrapped and you cannot perform a c-section).

NOTE:  In the United States, OB/GYNs typically aren’t trained in these techniques (despite detailed models that can train them) and usually just decide to do a c-section.  If this is not something you’re ok with, talk to your provider beforehand and/or consider transferring to a care provider skilled in vaginal breech (where indicated).  In Denver, Dr. Hall at Swedish has been known to do vaginal breech births.
