Clinical outcomes after vaginal breech training

A prospective research study

Breech Without Borders is sponsoring a prospective data collection project on outcomes of singleton or multiple breech births; providers who have attended a Breech Without Borders training workshop are eligible to participate. This will be the first study to look at clinical outcome data of a vaginal breech training program.

In an integrative review of the literature about breech birth training strategies, the authors found that studies had assessed providers' skill and confidence levels but that "no evaluations included clinical outcome data." The authors recommend that "Further evaluation studies should prioritize clinical outcome data." [1]
