Video analysis project

We are gathering breech birth videos for a research project, looking at the events that happen during explusion (from rumping until the birth of the head). 

We will be analyizing the following: 

  • the timing of vaginal breech births, specifically how long each body part takes (legs, arms, and head)
  • cardinal movements of the breech baby as it navigates the maternal pelvis
  • the use and timing of maneuvers 

I would like to submit a video. What do I do?
