Standards for upright breech birth now on-line

I’m pleased to share with you that the first paper resulting from my PhD research has been published on-line in Midwifery. This is the accepted manuscript version only:

When the final PDF version is available, I’ll write a fuller post, including a link for a free download, for those who do not have institutional access. – Shawn

P.S. I will be on the east coast of the US from 17-30 May this year, after presenting a video on upright breech birth at the ACOG conference with Dr Annette Fineberg & Brigid Maher of Mama Sherpas. If anyone would like to host a study day, I’d love to share this research with you so that more professionals can learn from the wisdom of the experienced panellists who contributed.

      Hi, Maxine. This is a conference film, made for teaching purposes, to raise awareness at the meeting about this practice. But it’s not available for distribution. Sorry! Good to know there is interest and demand. Will put it on the future projects list.
