Vaginal breech birth options are disappearing from hospitals. Even when allowed, restrictive protocols may diminish success. Fear has replaced confidence in most practitioners and its projection has been detrimental to our clientele. The speaker has been assisting women with breech birthing for over 30 years, the last six in the home setting. During this talk the participant will be informed about counseling women on the risks and benefits of vaginal v. cesarean and home v. hospital birthing. We will discuss proper client selection and review breech techniques and maneuvers using narratives and videos of real breech deliveries, to enable the participant to practice problem-solving in real time. Finally, Dr. Fischbein will present his data from six years of assisting breech birth out of the hospital.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Counsel clients with a better understanding of the true risks and benefits of term breech birthing options.
Objective 2: Properly identify good candidates for vaginal breech option using practical selection criteria.
Objective 3: Identify when a breech baby needs assistance and be aware of proper positions and maneuvers.
