Can we prepare for a natural birth even if our baby is breech?

The answer is yes!!  The statistics are in your favor.  Only 4% of babies remain in the breech position at the time of labor and birth.























Notes from today's video:
Even if you end up with a cesarean birth after exhausting all your options, by preparing for a natural birth, you can still take advantage of the information you learned in your childbirth class:

Consumerism and informed consent: can help you negotiate to allow your labor to start naturally and then (if necessary) head to the operating room after a trial of labor. Babies have been known to turn vertex (head down) during labor - you may decide it's worth trying. At the very least, you will get some of the benefits of the hormones that you are meant to get during labor if your labor happens according to your body/baby's schedule.

Relaxation techniques: can help you be present and intentional during your cesarean birth.  HERE is a post we have done exploring the options around a gentle cesarean, also known as a family-centered cesarean.

Exercise and nutrition: Our students who have cesarean births in order to preserve their Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby birth plan often report that their recoveries are vastly different from their friends who did not take Bradley classes.  The physical aspect of their recoveries are easier and shorter thanks to the fact that their body that was physically prepared for the act of birthing.

What are some of your options?  Find 3 full lists of ideas plus a visualization script HERE
