Liam Muckleston recorded his wife’s doctor visit at Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton, United Kingdom. At 36 weeks and three days, the baby had entered breech position. Any mother knows that a breech birth can cause some serious issues during labor.
Breech position occurs when the infant is in the mother’s womb foot, knees, or bottom first. During a pregnancy without complications, a baby should be born head first.
While it is safest to perform a C-section during a breech birth, complications like umbilical cord prolapse, oxygen deprivation, and injury to the brain and skull can occur.
