Delivery of Breech Baby

How is a breech baby delivered

A vaginal breech labour progresses in the same manner as a normal labour until the second stage. It is considered a trial labour and is allowed to proceed as long as it progresses normally.  In a breech birth, the buttocks are delivered first, then the legs. For the head to be delivered, an epsiotomy would be needed, as this is the largest part of the baby's body. At this point the doctor might use forceps and give you an epidural in case he needs to perform an emergency caesarian section.

Does breech baby necessarily mean a C-section

No. If the baby is in the complete breech or footing breech (where on leg dangles down), or if the baby's head is extended upwards, then a vaginal delivery will not be attempted at all. The doctor would recommend a caesarian section straight away.
