Vaginal Breech Birth: A Lost Art

Here's a photo of me and my sweet breech baby.


His bottom came out first,

Then one leg came out followed by the other leg,

He kicked his legs in the water,

And the midwife said "Look, he's doing just fine!"

An arm came out next and then the other arm,

And then "he put the hands and the feet on the bum cheeks,

And pushed his head out!"*

*as told to me by my sweet 6 year-old who, along with his 9 year-old brother watched his baby brother's birth.
