Birth stories are one of the highlights of this job, but even more so when the baby arrives upside down!
Many breach babies are now routinely delivered in hospital with a caesarean as this is deemed the safest option. However this should not always be the case. I know many hypnobirthing mothers who have delivered breech babies naturally and safely and strongly believe that this over medicalized stance on delivering breech babies is wrong.
I will not launch into this debate now, but just share this heart-warming story of the baby who was not going to wait for a caesarean.
Tracey had been advised that with her babies bottom was fully engaged in a breech position and therefore she had no option but to book in for a caesarean. This she did reluctantly as she had wanted a natural birth.
