Kate Marsh, Midwifery Manager at Tommy’s answers common questions relating to concerns about having a breech baby, from Bounty mums-to-be due who are soon due to give birth.

Many Bounty mums-to-be have contacted us to ask what happens if your baby is suspected of being breech during the coronavirus outbreak? Here we answer two popular questions:

Laura is 35 weeks and is due to have a scan to see if her baby is still breech.  She asks:

"I really don’t want to go to hospital unless I have to.  Can’t I just wait until I go into labour and be scanned when I go into hospital and then be sent to theatre to have a C-section if my baby is still breech"

Sophie’s baby is breech and she is 37 weeks pregnant. She wants to know:

"If I need to have a C-section; will my husband be able to be with me for all of the birth?"
