Recently, my repeat client had a repeat breech. I blogged once before about this amazing woman.
As you know, in the US, it is
impossible challenging to find an OB willing to manage a vaginal breech birth. Heading into a repeat cesarean, this mama did her research and opened a dialogue with her OB about her choices.
I’m delighted to report that Dr. Cowart with Greer OB supported her choice to wait 1 minute before clamping the cord and to have baby placed skin-to-skin. She enjoyed skin-to-skin contact for over an hour after her baby’s birth.
I hesitate in posting this because I’m afraid Greer OB will be overrun with families who want choices in their births! Soon, they might become like Dr. Polo Shirt who is so busy he’s turning expectant families away.
Thank you to this mama who maybe blazed a trail for other women to have this conversation! And congratulations on your beautiful baby!
