Breech

Around 3-4% of babies are breech (or bum first) at 36 weeks. In these stories you will hear from women who have had an External Cephalic Version (ECV); a procedure where an obstetrician uses their hands to manually turn the baby into a head-down position. However, ECVs are not always successful, hence women must elect to have a caesarean birth or are supported to have a vaginal breech birth which often has stricter limitations that a standard vaginal birth.
