The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada issued new guidelines this week calling for doctors to no longer automatically schedule moms for c-sections of their baby is positioned to enter the birth canal buttocks or feet first. They say a reassessment of earlier trials shows that babies and mothers do not suffer worse outcomes in vaginal breech births than those who opt for c-sections.

All right USA, it is time to step up and start acknowledging actual research rather than maintaining this completely ridiculous status quo.

That is fantastic news!! I know several women who "had to have a c-section" cause their baby was breech. Its just ridiculous!

I guess the real risk is using a provider who isn't skilled in breech deliveries. So if you are having a breech baby, you'd want to get a caregiver who is comfortable assisting in a breech birth, even if it means changing caregivers.

Yes, & it's time for Australia to recognise this as well. The cesarean rate here is just out of control, on par with the US I think.

I had a breech homebirth--I think it was generally a more painful birth experience but it went fine. I didn't tear either, and it was a first birth, 8.6 pound baby.

Exactly, and in some places there are NO providers who have any experience with breech births. So messed up!
