I am just trying to get ready and explore my options. I am 34 weeks pregnant with a breech baby. Yes, I am doing all kinds of alternative interventions to get her to turn. Yes, I will try a version in a few weeks. BUT, the biggest concern I have is that my wonderful, homebirth midwife has informed me that not only will she not deliver my baby at home, I would have to have a c-section. She says, and others agree, that there are NO providers in this area who will attempt a vaginal delivery of a breech baby on a first time mom. I have asked around in the alternative birthing community here, and everyone confirms that. I feel like I am being screwed. My baby is a healthy frank breech, soon to be full term. I would be willing to deliver in a hospital or birthing center. I can't believe I am being deprived of options. I have been told I could search the Amish community nearby for a lay midwife. I wouldn't know where to begin. Any body know an old midwife or OB within an hour of Philadelphia who would be willing to deliver my baby if she remains breech?
