Most babies present head down. If a baby's feet or buttocks are in position to deliver first, the baby is said to be breech. Breech deliveries increase the risk that the baby will suffer health problems or die. If your baby is breech, your doctor may try to turn the baby a few weeks before your due date simply by pushing your abdomen or suggest a cesarean delivery. A recent large study found that if one or both parents were born breech, their children are twice as likely to be born the same way.
