The safe conduct of vaginal breech birth is an important competency for all maternity carers. It applies to the care of women who plan a vaginal breech birth at term or women who unexpectedly are labouring with a breech at term. Maternity carers in these situations must first have a good rapport with the woman which allows her to understand the special variations of a breech birth. Next all maternity carers need to know in detail the mechanisms of a normal breech. Correspondingly they need to know the mechanism of the abnormal breech birth and how to deal with it. These principles are best learnt in real birthing situations ; training for such situations can also occur with the excellent models that are currently available.
