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.
