Pregnancy Home > Baby Is Breech! Now What?
If your baby is in a breech position, you may be wondering what happens now. Your doctor may attempt to turn the baby, and you may still be able to deliver vaginally, if your doctor is comfortable with this. Many times, however, a C-section is necessary. Babies in the breech position seem to have a higher risk of birth defects, but this is due to the defect itself and not the abnormal birth position.
- Frank breech (bottom down, feet straight up toward the head)
- Complete breech (bottom down, legs folded down near the bottom)
- Footling breech (one foot or both feet down).
