This insightful and powerful film shows a woman's journey negotiating a natural breech delivery within the hospital system The birth is a beautifully shot breech birth without any drugs or interventions, surrounded by supportive birth professionals, midwives and a very confident and competent obstetrician. It shows a complete external cephalic version. The story is told by the woman, accompanied by interviews of family/friends and birth professionals, who are part of the process of her pregnancy and birth. The film aims to create a wider understanding of birth from all perspectives focused on a 'woman-centered' model of car.
"A Breech in the System" is highly regarded and used widely as a teaching tool by midwives and obstetricians. It is always the most popular of the birth films midwifery students get to see.
