...Seems like the old time doctors could handle breech births, seems like the newer ones don't want to risk it for whatever reasons...

The younger ones (who are getting older all the time, oh, my!) have never been trained in vaginal breech birth. As they add more to medical school curriculum, they have to weed stuff out to keep it a four year program. Vaginal breeches are out as teaching c/s is the solution to breech babies, pre-eclampsia, failure to progress, past dates, etc.
Yup. Makes me like geezer docs and veterinarians more and more.
