I've read the comments about c-sections because of breech position & unsuccessful external cephalic versions. I don't understand why anyone who has a c-section feels as though they have failed. I had 2 c-sections, very healthy babies and an easy recovery without any complications whatsoever. I don't feel as though I missed out on anything by not having a vaginal birth. I'm a nurse in an NICU and have taken care of babies whose mother's had the external cephalic version and I've seen the results of the complications. As a result, I would never consent to a version. Never.
The goal is for a healthy baby and preserving your own good health. All considerations need to keep those goals in mind.
