Breech clinic

At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital we have a dedicated breech service run by Senior Midwife Louise Kidd and supported by Consultant Natasha Singh and also our Consultant Midwives. We are passionate about reducing risk to mothers and their baby and informing women of their choices. The clinic advises and supports natural techniques to help your baby to turn to a head down position. We recommend ECV (external cephalic version) at 36 weeks for first time mothers. If baby remains breech your options are outlined, recommendations will be made and we will support your informed decision of vaginal breech birth or elective caesarean section.

For more information please visit the guideline from Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
