    Default Subsequent pregnancies after breech birth

    Ive been doing some reading on this subject, and have come across both sides of the argument, where some reading indicates that having a family history and/or previous breech birth indicates that subsequent pregnancies carry a higher chance of being breech, and other state there is no correlation.

    So if you had a breech first child, what were your subsequent children? And, was there any medical or otherwise reason given to you as to why your child/children were breech presenting?

    Thanks again

    Morning - I was a breech baby delivered vaginally (mums first) and my brother (born 18 months later) presented normally.

    I'm not sure if she was given any reasons or anything by her Drs so can't help you with that bit of the post...

    My first baby was breech from at least 30 weeks, my second baby was head down and normally engaged. I was told with a first pregnancy it's more common as things aren't so stretched so it's not as easy for baby to move around.

    I have had seven children (all single births), and only the second was breech.

    I answered your poll, but realised that I probably shouldn't have because it was my second that was breech not my first.

    Edit - And no there was no reason suggested by medical personal as to why she was breech.

    My brother was breech he was my mums third and last baby. He turned in the last month and wouldn't go back. Dr said no medical reason for it was just one of those things.

    My first baby was breech, the 2nd, 3rd and so far 4th baby haven't been breech.

    No real reason was given for why my baby was breech, I have an retroverted uterus, don't know if that has any bearing, but I think it's common for first babies to be because things aren't as stretched/loose etc.

    I'm one of four kids myself and none of us were breech.

    My DD was breech, no reason given, just one of those things.

    2nd baby is currently head down and engaged at 36 weeks.

    DD was breech from about 28 weeks.
