Having a baby in the breech position presents its own set of challenges. A baby from 20 – 30 weeks moves around tonnes and that is expected and wanted because a healthy baby moves. If though, your baby is still ‘head up’ at 35 weeks we will need a plan for your baby’s birth.

Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this experience, as well as having four boys ourselves, we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally empower her throughout pregnancy and birth.

We invite you to join us over on Instagram @grow_my_baby. We also have a free pregnancy quiz for you to do at www.growmybaby.com.au

In this podcast we talk about:

  • How common breech positioning is
  • The different types of breech presentations
  • What are the key criteria to having a vaginal breech birth
  • Vaginal breech birth with twins
  • What most obstetricians recommend if your baby is breech at term
