Supporting the OptiBreech Teams

This Monday, we held a training day at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, to support the Imperial OptiBreech Team, led by Consultant Obstetrician Sabrina Das.

OptiBreech Just Giving Page

We will be donating 10% of any revenue obtained from this and all future study days to the OptiBreech Just Giving page, which is raising money to provide sites with extra support so that team members can continue to be on-call for women planning a vaginal breech birth.

We would be incredibly grateful if you would join us in this support by donating if you can and sharing the link with your social networks.

Below is some recent research to demonstrate how we are helping to make breech services better and safer for all families:
