Re: Anyone ever had a footling breech?

Well aprukeyp she doesn't say anything about it being a repeat c-section until further down the page after your comment to crunch!910 so I thought you should know.

Re: Anyone ever had a footling breech?

When I read the first post I had no idea it was a repeat c-section, it just sounded like she had one scheduled because the baby was breech. And at that point in the pregnancy there is still a good chance the baby could turn before birth, so I can see why people commented the way they did.

I read this line to mean she was having a c-section for other reasons besides baby being breech.

Re: Anyone ever had a footling breech?

My DD was a footling breech, we didn't find out until my appt at 39w3d - had a c/s two days later. Planning a VBAC for my birth this summer, so excited!

Not sure if the docs have told you, but with breech babies there is risk of hip dysplasia. Upon her first examination after birth they heard a click in her left hip, so they did lots of followups and ultrasounds (sooooo hard on a newborn) until they deemed her hip fine about 2 months later. I had no idea and it was kinda scary for me, but the docs were very supportive and kind when we went to the appts and referrals to specialists.

Wish you the best mama (and baby)

Thankyou There's no validity to her being rude to me, because I was not rude to OP and I never once suggested she not have c-section, and if in the OP it would have been explained that the csection was medically necessary and that she'd already had a csection, my reply would have been slightly different. (though no matter my reply would still ALWAYS encourage her to be fully informed, there is NOTHING wrong with encouraging that!)

Thankyou, to you as well!

Anyways the other thing is that only 80% of women can get pregnant & stay pregnant after having a c-section because of the scar tissue. My sister only has 1 child because of where they want to implant is where that scar tissue is. So she has pretty much given up on being able to have any more do to her losses. I don't blame her it has been hard.
I wish you well with your up coming c-section & hope you have a speedy recovery
i am a mom to 5 very healthy boys and all of them were born via c/s. i have never had any problem with any of mine. my c/s are medicaly necessary. i dont see why everybody thinks c/s are so bad. i plan on trying for baby #6 later this year. a c/s is not the end of the world, all that matters is that you have a healthy baby.

I did too.

OP, just keep an eye out for any signs of labor, I'm sure all will be fine! I'm as pro-homebirth/vaginal birth as it gets, and even I would schedule a section for a footling breech. I think people forget that there is a huge difference between frank and complete breech versus footling breech.

Anyhow, don't stress about it. Happy mama=happy baby. I'm sure your doctor is keeping a really close eye on you

Re: Anyone ever had a footling breech?

My husband's aunt gave birth to footling breech twins. This was back in the late 70's or early 80's (not sure how old they are but they are a little older than DH.) She didn't know until she was in labor OR that it was TWINS! Both boys were born feet first and she says it was a pretty easy labor and recovery. So it CAN be done. I am not sure if I would attempt it, but I would want to research all of my options before making a decision.
