Instructional breech birth videos

A Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist comments on the value of thoughtful reflection when watching birth videos:

"What makes breech birth safe is for the provider to recognize when intervention is needed, and what interventions are helpful. We can study what was done, how well it worked, and consider things like whether the intervention was needed at all and whether alternative approaches might have worked better.

These are teaching videos. They are not meant to depict perfection, but they are examples of real world births. When I look at my own birth videos, I usually find things to critique about my own choices. That's the whole point of studying the videos."
