My DH was breech, and he was delivered vaginally butt first. I don't think this is usually desirable, and I don't even know if that doctor thought it was a good idea or if it was just too late for a section. BUT... How many of you were delivered breech? How many of you have delivered breech babies?
Why is it bad to deliver a breech baby vaginally? Do they get stuck or something? Is it just harder on mom's vagina? I'm being honest, I really don't understand why butt first or foot first is unsafe.
Breech is usually only considered dangerous if the attendant is not trained & experienced. (Like most OBs.) Many women in the U.S. and all over the world have vaginal breech deliveries everyday, it is a variation of normal.

(above) How your "body is going to react"? (I don't understand what that means.) EVERY labor & birth is different. A mom's body is going to surge with hormones and contract, working to expel the baby.
