Is a c-section safer then trying to physically turn a breech baby?

Is a c-section safer then trying to physically turn a breech baby?

Safer for baby.: There is no question that a prelabor cesarean section is safer for the fetus than attempted external cephalic version and trial of labor. Having said that, however, a cesarean section is slightly more dangerous for the mother than a successful vaginal delivery (one excess death per 10, 000 births), although one can never accurately predict which women will have a successful trial of labor.

What happens if your baby is both extremely large and breech, is it safer to have him naturally or by c-section?

Risks vs. benefits: It would be safer to have a C-section. Discuss this with your OB however. If this is your first baby, I would not recommend a vaginal delivery. It's the old "risks vs. benefits" scenario. ...Read more

Is it always necessary to have a c-section if my baby is breech?

Is it always necessary to have a c-section if my baby is breech?

No: There is a procedure called an external cephalic version. An experienced physician uses his or her hands to gently move the baby into the correct position. A few years ago a medical study showed than vaginal breech delivery was more dangerous than a c section. Vaginal breech deliveries are not done often anymore. Ask if you are a candidate for external version. ...Read more
