Breech delivery: Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head.

Is it possible to have a normal delivery if the baby is breech?

Is it possible to have a normal delivery if the baby is breech?

15 days pp C-section delivery due to breech position. Pain, numbness and reduced mobility in hands and feet when I wake up. Should I be concerned?

Positional Numbness: Your symptoms are likely due to you not moving much when you sleep due to your incisional pain. When you stay in one position you place pressure on the nerves and they " go to sleep" resulting in the symptoms you describe. Once you get moving or change positions those symptoms go away. If they do not then see your doctor. As you get further out from surgery and move more at night it will improve. ...Read more
