  • I would check out the Birth is Normal group. They can give you a ton of help, support, and encouragement!

  • Lower risk of cord prolapsewith a frank breech. You can totally rock this.

    There are some photos of a successful homebirh of a footling breech. Are you doing this at home ? If you have an OB, there is a whole group of women in the birth is normal group who will want to send kudos cards to this OB for letting your baby come in to the world the way nature intends.

    And your baby could move. You might have a head first labor yet. Spinning babies is a good site.
