A fabulous series of birth stories by one mother of three children, and all of them were breech.
“Women should feel empowered in their birth choices/experience & should trust in their inner strength and natural ability. Natural breech birth can be done & can be a wonderfully amazing & beautiful birth experience!!”
First – undiagnosed, resulting in an emergency c-section in labour
“I will never forget the feeling of being strapped down to the operating table & having my baby ripped out of me as the OB on duty chatted with the nurses drinking her coffee.”
Second – a planned natural breech VBAC in hospital
“I had nurses ask me the next day why I would try to deliver naturally when I knew the baby was breech. All I can say is having gone through both a C-section and natural breech delivery – I would take the breech delivery any day!”
And third – a planned natural breech VBAC in the same hospital
“He was delivered by the OB on duty and a resident as our OB watched – it was an amazing experience! The tone in the room was also so different this time as the staff were so positive about the breech birth and it was an atmosphere of “way to go, that was amazing – you did it” as opposed to “why would you try and do that” as with my 2nd. The OB & resident were great & genuinely interested in my wellbeing & in being involved with a natural breech delivery.”
