<p>My husband's job is relocating to the OC area and we need a Midwife or Dr. who is very experienced with handling breech. Not sure if we'll have another breech baby yet, but I'm covering all my bases in case. Was told I have a predisposition for breech babies because of a bicornuate (heart shaped) uterus. I've had a c-sec for breech before, and would really REALLY like to not have another c-sec if possible. Have been doing my homework for baby #2 and would really like a natural homebirth.  It seems like everyone is telling me it's either too risky or not to bother trying b/c of my previous c-sec. Any recommendations would be appreciated!! I don't even know where to start looking.</p>

<p>Dr Ken James (<a href="http://lagunabeachobgyn.com/" target="_blank">http://lagunabeachobgyn.com/</a>) is an OB/GYN who does in-hospital VBACs and breech births.  He's the back-up OB for BJ Snell, PhD, CNM.  He's very supportive of natural childbirth, so I'd start there.  Also, the Magella Medical Group out of Saddleback Memorial Medical Center does breeches and VBACs.  I don't know of any midwives who do breech VBACs at home, and CNMs don't have privileges at private hospitals in OC (but we're working to change that!).</p>

<p>I have no idea about breech birth in OC but would encourage you to visit a chiro if you can. (Dr. Berlin in Los Angeles turned my breech baby in one session, which amazed my midwives.)</p>
