Delphinius Birth - Breech
This piece was commissioned to be a gift for a wonderful OB here who offers mamas the opportunity to birth their breech babies vaginally. The dolphins were included because dolphins give birth breech, then the "midwife" dolphins take the new babe up to the surface for its first breath. Dolphin Birth
A big thank you to Dr. Hall for allowing breech birth to be normalized in Denver, you are an asset to our birth culture here! On a personal note, my husband's oldest son was born breech vaginally. I feel strongly that it is a skill that needs to be taught and preserved. I personally have attended vaginal breech births (one was a surprise) and sometimes you never know when you'll be faced with that situation. Catching a baby breech is a valuable (and dying) art.
