Breech Position

My Baby was injured from a Breech Position, do I have a case?

A breech position is when the baby enters the birth canal with the buttocks or feet first, instead of head first. There are different types of breech positions, depending on the way that the baby presents in the womb. Complete breech, Frank breech, Footling breech and Kneeling breech are terms used to describe the baby’s breech position.

The risks of injury to the baby include oxygen deprivation, cord prolapse, head entrapment, damage to the brain, head and skull, damage to the baby’s internal organs, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, brain damage and in some cases, death. Many breech babies are born through C-section delivery, which increases risks of bleeding and infection for the mother.

Breech position babies must be closely monitored to determine whether they have turned. Skilled physicians and hospital staff, and a conscientious birth plan are necessary to prevent injury to both the mother and baby.
