From a midwife:
I just ordered the Breech Birth; Quick Guide! …Thank you also for not only your quick reply but your grace for those questions. I have been getting snippets of information [about breech upright birth] along the way the last couple of years, including hearing about Dr. Louwen. …I feel grateful for that and my original training, but knowing I’m missing some things or it’s incomplete. Part of my concern is just not recognizing when a baby was in trouble or misinterpreting the situation and intervening when I shouldn’t and potentially causing a problem.
The midwife in the quote above gives her honest reflection on the lack of complete education on breech birth.
What can we know that might save a life?
