It depends on the type of breech. A fully breech baby is usually taken by cesearean section due to the risk of excessive bleeding of the mother and meconium aspiration of the infant. If the baby is across the abdomen, side lying, the doctor or midwife may try manipulation by positioning the mother left lateral and massaging the abdomen. Follow your OB's advice to be safest. good luck. Joymaker RN
