You were talking about obstetrics, that is why I said docs. I definitely think that vaginal deliveries of breech and multiples are much more suited for midwifery than obstetrics.
As for the skills required in case of complications, if you mean knowing what to do, then yes that is necessary. Many care providers may have been there for breech births before but still not know the specifics of what complications can arise and what to do with them. I guess I am so used to hearing the word skill when referring to doctors intervening for any reason. I talked with a doctor once who explained the lack of episiotomies done by midwives by the fact that they were not skilled to perform them...
Gotcha! Unfortunately, our MW hadn't delivered a breech baby vaginally in years and didn't feel comfortable with it. It's a shame, as I labored quickly, and have had a natural delivery before (that "proven pelvis" concept talked about in terms of a favorable indicator) . . . it would have been rather easy, i think. But I needed the caregiver delivering her to be comfortable and prepared.
