What Is a Breech Birth? Types, Causes, and Giving Birth
Babies often twist and turn throughout pregnancy, but most of them will move into the delivery position (head first) a few weeks before birth. When this doesn’t happen, the baby’s feet and/or butt are positioned in such a way that they get delivered first.
This position is known as a breech presentation. Breech births are rare but occur in about 1 out of 25 full-term pregnancies.
