A breech delivery is any delivery in which the baby is not delivered with the "standard", head-first, presentation.
There are different types of breech presentations:
The frank breech presentation is when the bottom presents first, and the feet and legs are stretched up toward the head.
The complete breech presentation is when the bottom presents first, and the knees are bent, with the feet down near the buttocks (rather than straight up and near the head).
The footling breech presentation is when the feet present first.
Frank breech babies can be delivered without C-section, depending on the circumstances. It is common, however, for C-section to be recommended in breech presentations.
On a personal note, my 34-week premie was a "frank breech baby" and was delivered without C-section in about an hour and a half.
breech can also be where the baby is growing in your tubes. normally called a tubal pregnancy but can also be refered to as a breech birth! thats what the doctors told me at least.

Is a breech labour or a posterior labour more painful?I have experienced a posterior (back) labour without drugs. Just wondering how it compares to the pain of a breech labour/birth.

How much do you tip your pizza delivery driver?I think many people do not realize delivery drivers get paid a waitress wage, they pay for the wear and tear on their car, and the $1.30 the store gives them when they leave the store (even if they have 3 separate deliveries) does not cover gas usage.
