Mercedes Mason and Dr. Elliott Berlin discuss breech birth

Actress Mercedes Mason and Dr. Elliott Berlin were with us to talk about breech birth. This is what it’s called when a baby is born bottom-first instead of head-first.

Recently, women facing breech births find they no longer have a choice in how the baby should be delivered.
Here's some background from the documentary film, ‘Heads Up.’

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology committee on breech deliveries said this:  "Cesarean delivery will be the preferred mode of delivery for most physicians because of the diminishing expertise in vaginal breech delivery."

There will be a rally against a ban on vaginal breech birth Wednesday from 11:00am to 3:00pm at the Glendale Adventist Medical Center.
