Breech Presentation - Delivery by Cesarean
Because of the potential risk of complications in a vaginal delivery of a baby in a breech position, many doctors now regularly deliver such babies by cesarean. The common indications for a cesarean delivery are –
- Large baby
- Suspicion of an inadequacy of the pelvis.
- Prolonged labor.
- Baby with intrauterine growth retardation.
- Previous caesarean section.
- Oligohydramnios (less amniotic fluid)
- Pre-term labor.
Other associated complications like placenta previa, hypertension in pregnancy.
