just out of interest: has anyone had a vaginal birth with a breech baby?
i'm only 14 weeks and ds was fine, normal delivery, but ever since i got pregnant the first time i keep wondering: what if...?
i come from germany, they do a few more breech vaginal deliveries there, than they seem to do here. is it mostly cause nobody knows how to do them? america seems to be afraid of anything when it comes to childbirth, so i was hoping i could find some answers about this issue on this board.
when i mentioned to dh the other night that if the baby was breech, i'd try to convince my mw to do vaginal delivery, he FREAKED. i'm pretty sure, my mw would think i'm nuts, too, since she's part of a bigger practice and they do have certain policies...
i know there's risks involved, but it's not like they never used to do it in the old days, right?
