Breech presentation occurs in approximately 3% to 4% of term pregnancies; of those, it is estimated that 8% to 35% remain undetected until labor. Which for the US birth rate works out to be between 10,000 and 46,450 breech presentations not diagnosed until labor last year.
No matter how good your palpating skills, or how often you order an ultrasound, this eventuality will continue to occur both in the hospital setting and out. Midwives need to be prepared to attend these births regardless of what state laws allow, because just like shoulder dystocia, you can not risk assess this complication out of your practice.
Just like any other rare birth event, all midwives should be prepared to safely attend unplanned breech birth – this course shows you how.
Midwives need to be prepared to attend these births regardless of what state laws allow because just like shoulder dystocia, you can’t risk assessing this complication out of your practice. Babies don’t know how to read or follow state laws, so you must understand how to free a stuck breech baby even if breech is ‘illegal’ in your state.
Review the mechanism of physiologic breech birth, as well as key interventions to diagnose and resolve breech dystocia.

I’m a midwife, mentor, and muse.
I take great joy in teaching the art and science of midwifery. But I also LOVE seeing birth business entrepreneurs find financial success and sustainability in their practice.
This is why I created the Midwifery Wisdom School, a digital gathering place for birth professionals to collaborate, support and champion each other’s success.
I have 25 years experience in the business, co-op and non-profit business models, plus 25 years as a practicing midwife with excellent statistics and I’m excited to share my life’s work with you. Let me shorten the path to the good life by using all the lessons from my years fighting the good fight.
Can’t wait to see you in the course!
