Re: Facing my second breech c-section :( Help me with my birth plan.

Sorry mama! Thanks - I'll ask for that!
We had an ultrasound done on my 2nd son (who was breech) to check his hips. They can do the ultrasound before your child turns 6 mos. old. After that it's x-rays. Our laid back care provider was insistant on having it done and we were okay with the ultrasound. I'd much prefer that vs. an x-ray if it's needed down the road.

Also, even if you see something is off with the hips later on.. they'd still want to do an x-ray to help diagnose it. If they can catch it early on, early intervention can help your baby. The earlier dealt with, usually the better... JMO
