Caption: Breech position foetus. Coloured 3D (centre) and 2D computed tomography (CT) scans of a breech position foetus in its mother's uterus. At centre the skeleton of the foetus is seen with the head at top and legs at centre. The scans at right and left show the width of the mother's pelvis. Breech position results in a baby being born feet or buttocks first instead of head first. Although the majority of breech babies are delivered safely, there is an increased risk of complications as the buttocks and feet do not dilate the cervix as efficiently as the head. The most common complication is compression of the umbilical cord during delivery. This leads to oxygen deprivation in the foetus and may cause brain damage or even death.
