If Your Baby Is Breech (Copyright © American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists)
Publication Year: 2010
Type: Online publication
Most babies move into the normal head-down position in the mother's uterus a few weeks before birth. But if this doesn't happen, the baby's buttocks, or buttocks and feet, will be in place to come out first during birth. This is called breech presentation, and it occurs in about 3 out of every 100 births.
