Abstract:

This presentation will present an algorithm to assist with decision-making around complicated breech births where the mother is birthing in an upright position, e.g. kneeling, standing, hands/knees. The algorithm is based on video analysis research. It includes recommended timings to determine if the birth requires assistance and suggests maneuvers to help in various situations. The algorithm will be explained alongside explanations of the maneuvers.
