In brief: Breech

Unfortunately in this day and age of medical malpractice i don't think that you will find any md who will do a breech delivery in a home.
You will be hard pressed to find one who will do a vaginal breech delivery in a hospital. It happens less and less often and the number of md's experienced in this is diminishing.

In brief: None

Although vaginal breech delivery is a skill taught to most well-trained obs, no one will electively plan one.
Very good studies show that even with an expert attendant, there is increased risk to the infant. It's now reserved for emergencies, twins, or precipitous breech deliveries. Options left are a version or c-section, good luck.
