    love this post. it really warms my heart.

    was there a reason that this baby, too, was breech? a uterine septum? just chance?

    thanks so much, lisa, for all you do and the stories, images and wisdom you bring to our world.

    So happy this woman had a great birth this time! The look on her face in that last photo is priceless. :D

    Lisa. I know my baby might still turn but did you post this for me??!! Kind of fits our last conversation, hey?!

    The look on this mother’s face, as she’s holding her brand spanking newborn, pretty much sums it up for me. GLORIOUS ! And when I think that had my second baby not turned, my only *potential* care-provider option (for an attempt at vag. birth) would have been a 2-hr ferry ride away… Love to you, Lisa, and to this gorgeous and courageous mother. xxx

    Wow! What a truly amazing story. The strength and courage of this woman is overwhelming. I love the last picture of her holding her baby – the expression on her face says it all. It was all so worth it. Hope Mama and Babe are well.

    How I wish the midwives at the local Natural Birth Centre here had the confidence and belief in birth to support breech babies and their mothers. Many of us would have avoided traumatic interventions that followed…good on you Lisa for true midifery care!

    How I wish the midwives at the local Natural Birth Centre would support breech babies and their mothers. Many of us would have avoided unneccesary interventions and have been left feeling the empowerment and euphoria the mother in the photos so obviously feels. Good on you Lisa for true midwifery care!

    I had a c-section due to breech as well and I hope that for my next birth I will be able to deliver naturally, even if the baby is breech.

    How does one go about finding a midwife who will deliver breech babies though? I know I can ask them about their experiences. But how do I know that a midwife has sufficient experience?
