I’ve been thinking about this more lately after hearing that one of my moms ended up with a section after a successful ECV. There is so much more that happens as far as interventions go once the mom is admitted into the hospital. Difficult births that lead to extended second stage or cesarean may have to do more with the medical inductions and interventions than the ECV or anything we promoted. OBs (and hospital midwives) can be so impatient. It’s frustrating. For this reason, I strongly encourage moms to work with doulas.
Every single mom, here in the States, is getting scheduled for a medical induction. Why? When did this become the standard?
