-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FILM Running time: 34 minutes - Despite being a currently acceptable practice by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), today medical residents are rarely taught the art of delivering a breech baby vaginally, and the option is rapidly disappearing as the older doctors who have the training and experience to deliver these babies retire. Many midwives are still trained in breech birth and still offer the option but in many areas local laws have been eliminating breech birth from their scope of practice. The film, “Heads Up,” presents the case that the option of a vaginal breech delivery should be saved and restored and made available to all eligable parents-to-be, allowing them to make an informed choice about their birth plans.
