Abstract

At the present time in our country, when faced with a breech presentation through the cervix uteri, the majority of hospitals carry out an elective Cesarean section. The Spanish Association of Gynecology and Obstetrics does not indicate a strict operating protocol for these cases. The authors carry out a transversal study to test a mother's and her child's state of health after having undergone birth through the vagina birth canal when a breech presentation through the cervix uteri occurred, using various parameters for their analysis. Our results indicate that with the mother's consent and in the situations indicated, to have birth via the vagina birth canal when there is a breech presentation through the cervix uteri can be tried.
