Vaginal Breech Birth
According to Wikipedia:
A breech birth happens when a baby is born bottom first instead of head first. Around 3-5% of pregnant women at term (37-40 weeks pregnant) will have a breech baby. Most babies in the breech position are born by caesarean section because it is seen as safer than being born vaginally.
“It was an honor and privilege to witness my colleague and partner, Carrie Reed, CNM, completely support and care for our patient/mother in her purposeful and empowering vaginal breech birth. From the moment of “ruptured membranes”, to triage evaluation, to discharge home to await spontaneous labor to 18 hours later readmission and safe passage of baby Charlotte…7 pounds 8 ounces in the wee hours of this morning into Midwife’s unassisted hands 🙂 Assured, calm and balance into a room full of love. This quiet safe space protected by the guiding “hands and heart” of a fully present midwife, thank you Carrie.”
Wonderful work and congratulations to all… #BringBirthBack!
