Not the Usual Way? Breech Presentation Revisited

This article, linked below, shows some recent thinking about breech (butt-first) delivery. While some forward-thinking OBs are revisiting the idea that breech = cesarean, most are probably not. As a doula, my position is to have no position. My job is to support the person giving birth -- and her family -- regardless of the manner in which the baby is born, and to make sure that any questions she has are answered to her satisfaction so that she is ready to have her baby.

Happy reading and Happy Labor Day!
