anyone who has not signed the CBB petition, please visit the website, read the wording carefully, and sign it if you agree. I just found out that the SOGC is getting ready to publish new guidelines so we need to get this in so they know that we care.

btw watch for an article on breech birth in Today's Parent Pregnancy this fall.

thanks everybody

Interesting! My DD was breech (in Scotland) and we were told it had to be a c-section. Do you know of any western countries that do give women the choice these days?

9 years ago I was given the choice by an OBGYN to birth my breech baby vaginally. In fact, he encouraged me to try! Since then, I have not heard of any vaginal breech births. Every time I hear of a breech baby, I hear that they quickly did a c-section. I hope that vaginal breech births will become accepted and encouraged in Canada. Well, everywhere

Speaking from Ottawa, Ontario:
There were a couple in town who would have been willing to attend mine without a fight, but you get who you get on call. I got one of the unwilling. Thanks SO MUCH to Robin's work and the support of some very strong women, including a midwife who calls herself an 'activist first', I pushed my baby out of my vagina last July.

i wish i could find more about footling breech and vaginal delivery. anything i've ever read seems to look at the more common frank breech.

great work you are doing robin!
