Mary-Anne Healey has had four babies. All were in the breech position, and all were born vaginally.
The Victorian mum is concerned by news that the state’s only specialist breech clinic, at the Royal Women’s Hospital, is being closed.
According to a report in The Age yesterday, women who have visited the hospital recently with a baby in the breech position have been told that the hospital no longer does planned vaginal breech births
“I’m not against caesars,” Healey tells Mamamia. “If it has to happen, it has to happen. It’s just that sometimes you have to deliver the baby, and the staff need to be prepared.”
