    Breech birth/ecv

    Ladies, is there any obgyn or hospital in Sg which does breech delivery or ecv? I had a c-section due to breech baby 3 weeks ago. Somewhat disappointed as I've been anticipating normal birth for months; thought if breech happens again for my next baby, I'd like to reconsider c-section.

    I've read somewhere that Dr Paul Tseng will try ECV and Dr Selina Chua does breech delivery.

    Hi arrafah,

    Breech for 1st baby may not necessary mean you will have a breech baby again. This is good news, ya! So dont't worry too much yet...
    If you want a natural birth in your second baby, you will need to consider first the risks of having a VBAC...
    Did you do an ECV before the birth of your baby recently?
    THe RCOG UK does recommend ECV for breech cases if natural birth is desired. But I have heard that it can be painful, uncomfortable and bleeding may occur.
    I know few in Singapore will take the risk of delivering breech babies... perhaps C-sect is much safer now than decades ago. Also perhaps the current newer gyanes are not so skillful in breech deliveries... so c-sect is the way to go for most breech cases as taught in med school now.
    Enjoy your newborn baby!
