In breech position, the baby's bottom is down. There are a few types of breech:
Complete breech means the baby is bottom-first, with knees bent.
Frank breech means the baby's legs are stretched up, with feet near the head.
Footling breech means one leg is lowered over the mother's cervix.
You are more likely to have a breech baby if you:
Go into early labor
Have an abnormally shaped uterus, fibroids, or too much amniotic fluid
Have more than one baby in your womb
Have placenta previa (when the placenta is on the lower part of the uterine wall, blocking the cervix)
