Not myself, but have heard it described as more than unpleasant.
If you have a breech positioned baby, there are plenty of options that might be just as --or more-- successful, too. Consider The Webster Technique and Moxibustion for excellent success rates.
Depending on where you are in the world, what is "common" for delivering breech-positioned babies can vary dramatically. If you're in the States, know that OBs are surgeons who do not learn how to attend vaginal breech delivery in medical school. (And malpractice insurance will then not cover them...)
Elsewhere in the world, vaginal breech is the norm. You do have options~ I have more info, let me know if you'd like it. :-)
