Hi everyone!


This is my first post here and my first experience with a C-section (Second daughter though!)

Welcome to the board and ocngrats on expecting your second soon. My personal opinion on this is if your doctor had any concerns about birth defects it would have come up in your previous scans, they would have ordered more detailed scans if there was a concern.

I am sure there are many reasons why babies are breach, but on this board I do not recall anyone who's baby had a medical condition or birth defect that caused the baby to be breach. There are many mom on the board that have had breach babies though, me included.

I would call your doctor and get in and talk to him/her about your concerns, they know that we read the information on the Internet and they know that some of us will have concerns with what we read and bring it to their attention, so talk to them about it and they can put your mind at ease.

Keep us posted and read over the birth plan in the section below to help you prepare for the birth as well.

Tonya - I don't think I've ever heard that breach position causes birth defects jus that the baby doesn't turn. Of course if you try to vaginally birth a breach there is a risk of complications -- is this what you might have heard?


I'm sure that your doctor would have talked about this with you if this was the case!!


Good luck with your C/S. Keep us posted!

I had a CS because my son was breech....and he's just fine, his head was a little misshapen because he was stuck up under my ribs for so long, but otherwise he's GREAT!
