well done!!!! Sam was footling breech and delviered naturally - although being twin two Fynn had paved the way so to speak. Sam was fine too actually it was Fynn that caused me the need for forceps and episiotomy - sam was out in two pushes.

Did you have to get him hip scanned too? I am not sure if its for all breech positions or just footling?

I didn't have his hips scanned, as he showed no signs of hip dysplasia. From what I have read, though, it would be common to scan all breech babies. Then again, once I was out of the hospital, there was no way you were going to get me to come back as the staff was very rude to me. Did you have to come back for the scan, or did they scan him when you were in the hospital?

we had to come back - but his twin Fynn was in special care for three weeks after birth so for us was no hassle as we were there every day anyway.

I did end up having stitches, but doubt I would have if I was allowed my homebirth. I asked the doctor how many stitches, but she said "Oh, we don't count them." :-p They even neglected to tell me the degree of the tear. I'm guessing it was a 2nd degree tear. Oh, and I didn't tear in the perenium, rather the tear went up toward my clitoris. I am guessing that's cause the stupid doctor had her hand in me and was pushing the head away from my perenium when I was pushing, which cause undue stress and pressure on my other parts, causing me to tear.
