In brief: Breech delivery
Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head.
It is very risky because head can get trapped inside the uterus and also hypoxic episodes are more prone in this case of delivery. Head is the largest part of the baby so maternal pelvis may not accomodate the head. Today in civilised world no one delivers breech unless the baby butt is out and you can't do a cesarean.
